Partnering With Ritz Craft

 
 
 
 
 

Products That Work

quality materials, made in the USA

Ritz Craft's mission is to provide products and services to their customers that are unparalleled in design, workmanship and quality. Ritz-Craft homes are built stronger than site-built homes. This is because all Ritz-Craft Homes are built with more framing and fastening materials to withstand the stress of transportation. A traveler document is produced for every home that Ritz-Craft builds. Every single function that is performed in the home is documented and signed off by the person executing the task, his or her supervisor and the quality control inspector. In addition, third-party inspectors ensure consistent quality and code compliance that meets or exceeds state standards.

People Who Care

family owned since 1954

Founded in 1954, and still family owned and operated, Ritz-Craft specializes in system-built homes that are custom built off site in one of five climate controlled facilities. These components are then transported to the site, installed on the foundation and completed by a local building partner. The knowledge and experience gained from those years go into every Ritz-Craft home they build.

They maintain a high level of quality through the steady employment of experienced, skilled and highly trained employees. Ritz-Craft employees have a sense of pride and ownership in the homes they build.

THE PROCESS

ORDER / Once you have chosen your favorite vacation home from our online catalog, let us know through one of our order forms. A Comtuck Representative will reach out and guide you through the customization process. Each design has a selection of layouts, amenities, fixtures and decor finishes to choose from. Build your second home to fit your needs, style, and family size. Once each option is chosen and you have approved the plan, an official order gets placed and a purchase agreement is signed. A deposit is due at this time before the design is sent out.

PRODUCTION - PART 1 / Once the details are ironed out in the Order Phase, your home is built in two stages. Ritz-Craft begins the process in their facility. There, skilled engineers and builders construct your home with superior materials and time tested techniques in a climate controlled environment. When this section of production wraps, the structure is 80-90% complete. It is then safely transported to the final location by a skilled professional and securely placed on the permanent foundation.

PRODUCTION - PART 2 / After delivery, our local team of builders complete the remaining tasks. Systems are hooked up and tested (ie electrical, heating, plumbing..). Shingling, flooring, and exterior elements like porches, garages, or landscaping are also completed. At the end of production we will do a final walkthrough with you and present your certificate of occupancy.

MOVE IN / Once your home is completed, you and your family are welcome to move in! This process will vary based on the complexity of your design and additions. Production for this round of homes is slated to begin in Spring - Summer 2017, with move in dates beginning in Fall - Winter 2017.
