Building Finished Basements that Last

1. You want to have a comfortable, beautiful finished basement, BUT you want it to last!

2. Most contracting companies use standard “above-grade” materials which is a recipe for disaster. These materials end up with mold and mildew and you have to tear out the whole basement and start over.

3. Total Basement Finishing contractors eliminate these problems by only using completely waterproof, inorganic & mold-resistant materials that are designed specifically for basements. You will have the basement you've wanted and it will last long as your house.

    Carolyn and Ross of Evanston, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Carolyn and Ross from Evanston, IL wanted to turn their basement in a fun family room. A place to entertain their family and friends. They also wanted to make sure they did it right from the beginning. If they were going to invest in a finished basement, they wanted it to be a space that they will be able to enjoy for as long as they live in the house. They didn't want to have to refinish it again if there was ever a water problem. For that reason they chose Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing. They had learned about their 100% waterproof basement finishing products during a home show and were pretty much sold on the spot. From that point on, the entire experience they had with the company was extremely positive, including the installation process. "Once we started it was a pretty quick process. We worked with Dan and he came even on the 4th of July weekend, so we were really impressed with that! They got the job done really quick and we were able to enjoy our basement!" -- explains Carolyn.

    Christian and Karen F. of Skokie, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Last June, we got a very hard rain and I didn't realize that our window well was improperly installed so our basement flooded. We did have to rip out our carpet so when a contractor came in to do the removal, he was ready to also rip out the bottom few feet of our walls. I was so happy that I got to tell him, "oh no, you don't have to do that with these walls, they may look like drywall, but they aren't, they are completely waterproof and there is absolutely no reason to rip these walls out!"

    By Amber M.
    Kenosha, WI

    Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing is topnotch! I am completely satisfied with the service I received from them. ( And that takes a lot!) They were on time, respectful, informative, honest, hardworking, and very personable group of people. I really appreciated being kept in the loop every step of the way. It helped me see what was going on, without feeling in the way. The basement looks great. Never would have thought my old, dingy, dirty, afraid to go into basement would be such a nice calm, safe, and enjoyable space. A+

    We went with Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing because we were impressed with the product and we felt that it was superior to drywall when it comes to dealing with moisture. By looking at the finished product, you would never know that it is not drywall and it looks great. Buck and the crew did an outstanding job and they were great at letting you know where they were in the process along the way.

    The basement looks awesome. I really like that they put a thermastat down here with baseboard heat, an option I chose vs. piping into existing heating system and it's been awesome. 3 years later and we are just as happy as we were when they finished.

    I was very surprised at the quality of the product when I saw it in person. The pictures in the brochure do not represent it as well. This is a great product, I have done a lot of research on various basement finishing products and this is the best one out there.
