Ryan Homes driveway issues not resolved!
Some things to think
about before you build a Ryan Home....yes, they're inexpensive....but
as my 85 year old father still says to this day... "You get what you
pay for! " In this case it's true....
I've noticed in their model...They had a "name brand" furnace
in their basement...my neighbors and myself have "generic" models in
our homes....They claim, in order to keep the cost of their homes as
low as they are, they purchase from different suppliers to get the best
deal...This example was also noticed with their toilets and a pedestal
sink....In the model they showed Crane brand toilets, they tried to
install Mansfield toilets and a pedestal sink in my home, which is a
lesser grade product...I refused to allow the Mansfield product to be installed...they
then installed the Crane brand after they gave me a hard time...They'll
show you one thing in a model, then give you something else in your
home! Watch out!!!.......
Bad ventilation system
concerning the heating and cooling of various rooms.....Some rooms are
hot....some are freezing...especially on the second floor....All of my
neighbors also complained about this problem.....
When they were building the house, I noticed they will not put anything that is unnecessary into the construction
of the house....If it meets "code", that's where they stop...I wanted
"Tyvek" house wrap installed on the outside of my home, I was even
willing to pay extra for the product....They refused to install it
stating it wasn't required by code in our area...
leaked, along with half the other Ryan Homes
in our section of the development....
the development is Stonebridge Creek, which is located in Avon, Ohio
....the is a development where Ryan Homes
moved into when the housing market went South, to offer an inferior product
, at a greatly reduced cost compared to the other homes in
the neighborhood....If you do build with Ryan Homes
expect to deal with the problems, and a million excuses why you
shouldn't be concerned and never have the issues resolved in the long
Which leads me to my biggest issue.....My Ryan Home driveway was discolored a blackish gray from an incorrect mixture of calcium
when it was poured....a six inch "bubble" resulted at the end of the
driveway along with chipping on the surface in various areas about the
size of a quarter, this occurred in about thirty different areas....You could hear and
feel the difference in hardness between the correctly poured light
colored areas of concrete, and the dark gray areas by scratching a
piece of metal along the surface..After having various Ryan
Managers out to assess the complaint....they said they won't replace the driveway....Pick up
the Ryan Home Home Owners Booklet, which is a blue booklet....It covers
every imaginable situation or problem that may occur to a home , it
states they will make repairs at their "discretion" for about 70
percent of the issues that are in the booklet...Which means, they will
come up with a million reasons why its not their fault, then, they
won't fix the problem....That's how they cover their butt!
may be tempted by the price, attractive sales reps., and special offers
to lure you in.....Do your homework...talk to Ryan
homeowners.....Remember my experience...Then go to plan "B".....Build
with someone other than Ryan Homes
