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.

    John K. from Cudahy, WI needed more room for his large family, and decided to finish his basement. Buck Buckley Total Basement Finishing was the company he chose for the job. In this video he speaks about his experience as a customer, from the fist design consultation, financing, all through the installation and cleanup process. "They were very friendly, they had a lot of great ideas, they were always communicating with us. From the very beginning of the design, through construction and total finishing."

    Bob P.
    Union Grove, WI
    A year before this video was shot, Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing had worked on Bob P.'s basement in Union Grove, WI. While he was happy with the beautiful results, it was only in the next spring that Bob got the proof that when Buck Buckley says waterproof basement finishing, he really means it! After a heavy storm, Bob found a few inches of water in his basement. Worried, he called us and was told to just relax and wait for everything to dry out. Bob did just that, while watching his neighbors dispose of ruined drywall and wet carpet removed from their flooded basements. Just as promised, within two weeks, his entire basement was fully dry, there was no stains, no mold. It looked as if it was never flooded. "You could walk in here and you could never tell we had water, so it is a tremendous value when you need it, and you never know when you'll need it", says Bob.

    Customer Testimonial

    Laurie and Rod B.
    New Berlin, WI
    Laurie and Rod B.'s home in New Berlin, WI had a large basement that was mainly being used for storage. It was not a place they could use to entertain or spend some quality time as a family. When they were ready to finished their basement, they chose Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing for a number of reasons. First because nearby neighbors had their basement finished by the company, and highly recommended them. They were also impressed by how the system looks, its insulation and waterproof capabilities. Knowing that basements are naturally prone to moisture and water accidents, it is good to have a finished basement with walls, ceiling and floors that will not grow mold or be damaged by water and humidity.They were very pleased with the entire experience, from the first visit to the installation crew who did not overlook a single detail requested by the couple and delivered the entire project in two and a half weeks. "Now we have a beautiful basement that we can be proud of!" -- concludes Laurie.

    Melissa & Shawn S.

    Our overall experience with Buck Buckley's was excellent. From the time we met Chris for the quote, we were excited about the project. He was honest about the work Buck Buckley's could do, and didn't try to oversell us on anything, in fact, he talked us out of doing some work because it wouldn't look right. When we met Dave for the first time at our final planning meeting, he had some additions to the project, but explained everything very well. When the time came to deliver the materials (which was actually months ahead of schedule) the crew was very accommodating to our schedule and allowed us time to finish the demo and prep the space. Sean did an amazing job on the construction - he was so thorough and detailed, and we could tell he takes a lot of pride in his work. Everything was completed beautifully, and no short-cuts were taken. He even repaired our exterior door (not part of the project, and NOT damaged by him) - twice! He adjusted the main door because it was rubbing when opening and closing, and replaced the storm door closer because it was bent. The electrician Mike spent two Saturdays on our project making sure everything was done to meet our timelines. Brad was very patient with all of our questions and was quick to respond to every text message. We did have a few hiccups in the process, but Brad and the team went above and beyond to make things right for us. We can't wait to use our new space and enjoy it for years to come.

    Dan and Nicole C.
    Waukesha, WI
    Dan and Nicole have been living in their Waukesha, WI home for over 13 years. As their children grew, they began to think about finishing the basement, to provide the kids with an area to hang out and entertain friends. They started to look for options and companies to get the job done and found Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing. "What we liked best is that everything was all inclusive. We wouldn't be hiring out someone to do our flooring, or electrical work, or anything like that. It was all done within this company in a rather timely fashion!" -- says Nicole. "There was no question in our mind that it would be done right. We knew that. With Buck Buckley's it would be done the proper way, with permits and things like that." Their newly finished basement has a family room and a play area with a ping pong table. It is a beautiful, versatile space that the family will enjoy for many years.

    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.
