I never said they don't have issues, I'm just commenting on our great experience building two (2) homes with them.

And while their lots are typically quite shallow as a base (82'-88' ft), our single was 111' and we were very happy.

To each their own.

Mattamy is the highest volume builder in Ottawa, they achieve this by offering the best value per sqFT, however their lot sizes are shorter than other builders (WideLot is a brilliant marketing scheme), and they have failed to adopt many features which are standard for other builders (such as 9' ceiling on first floor, and mattamy townhomes come with an unfinished basement).

Mattamy definitely cuts corners in their workmanship, standard features, and lot size, in order to keep the prices of their house low compared to other builders.
To each their own.

I am highlighting my great experiences (2) and also that Mattamy can produce quality and sub-quality just like most other builders in Ottawa. Some people choose to narrow in because they had a bad experience and they are welcome to do so...but I will chime in to show the other side of the coin so people have a fair comparison.
