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.

    J.C. Diner of Chicago, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Catalyst did a fantastic job repairing our wall after it sustained water damage. I was greeted by the company owner in our first meeting, where he had a professionally prepared PowerPoint presentation touting Catalyst's credentials. They lived up to all their promises and even exceeded expectations. Since we live out of town, they put together a video clip and before and after pictures of the work, and emailed it to me. They mailed back our keys to our home address. They patched other holes in our walls from hanging pictures. And the list goes on and on. I can't speak highly enough of Catalyst's operation and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do any kind of remodeling on their home.

    Chris L. of Chicago, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Catalyst did an excellent job remodeling our bathroom. One great thing was that work was done and progress was made every single day. There were NO days of living with construction without progress. Surprises (like an extra layer of tile below the tile being removed) were handled in a very matter of fact way. Post-completion touch-ups were done professionally and in a timely manner

    By Amber M.

    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.
