Waterbrook Builders

Waterbrook Builders is a Florida based home builder. Founded by Tommy Yianilos who has been involved in a series of lawsuits recently over faulty work and defective houses that could not be inhabited after receiving an order of completion and telling the clients that they could move in. What happened in both of these instances is that the clients had to sue Tommy Yianilos.

In the housing bust of 2008 Tommy Yianilos had to file bankruptcy and has had a history of low quality builds and has badly hurt his clients. Here are some of the reviews that you can find online about the experiences working with Waterbrook Builders LLC:


Tom Yianilos and Waterbrook Builders built my home and on the first day of my occupancy of this new home my shower turned into disaster as it leaked, with water pouring through the ceiling below! It was then determined that I have (5) LEAKING showers, confirmed by expert engineers and insurance adjusters who determined that the linear drains were installed incorrectly, the drains were installed incorrectly and the shower pans themselves had been installed incorrectly.

Additionally, all my balcony railings are NOT to code and all (5) balconies leak. All the railings and tile must be replaced.

I have had to tear out multiple ceilings because of the leaks. I am currently unable to live in my home. I am paying for storage for my brand new furniture as I have been unable to have it delivered due to these conditions.

Waterbrook has REFUSED to honor their builders warranty. Although Waterbrook was made aware of all of these issues, I have been left with no choice but to hire lawyers at my expense to sue them for breach of their warranty and construction defects.

I have other myriad issues with the house. Tom Yianilos, who is a principal owner of Waterbrook, stood in my living room on closing day with a multi page "punch list" of work they had to do and promised me in front of a room of people that all would be taken care of in a few weeks. I have a fully executed builders warranty from Waterbrook. Repair costs to me will be around $1,000,000 - yes that's correct!"

"We hired the team from WaterBrook Builders to build a house located in Fort Lauderdale.
At the beginning they gave us many promises that actually were never met.

We have been nothing but patient and professional with them. We had a contract with them that the house will be completed within 12 months from the date of permit. That was a joke, we did not get occupancy 21 after the permits were issued. After the move we had contractors left and right trying to complete things that were incomplete. As business owners we know that it could be frustrating dealing with 3rd party vendors, but this company does nothing to update you, or do anything to make you feel assured that the problems will get fixed.

They sent a company to fix something that was not even related to the issues we have.

To name a few of the issues; balcony drain leaking through the garage, main shower drains leaking through the floors causing severe damages and rust stains throughout the ceilings. They sent a vendor to reseal the shower with silicone. Anyone over 10 yrs old will know that a silicone seal will not prevent a drain to stop leaking between floors.
Since then, no one has called to follow up when or if they will do anything about it."
