The Company constructs homes within a wide range of price and size targeting a broad range of homebuyers. Standard Pacific operates in many of the largest housing markets in the country with operations in major metropolitan areas in California, Florida, Arizona, the Carolinas, Texas, Colorado and Nevada.

In June 2015, Standard Pacific Homes and Ryland Homes announced the companies were merging. The combined company is expected to be the nation's fourth largest home builder.[2] Following the merger the expected name is to be CalAtlantic Group, Inc. [3]

Operations expanded to include Northern California in 1970, Texas in 1978, and Arizona in 1998. Since then the company has expanded into new markets primarily by acquiring established homebuilders in those areas.
