Scot ‘Buck’ Buckley, owner of Buck Buckley’s Total Basement Finishing, has been in the construction business nearly all of his life.
As a freshman in college at the age of 17, he began working for his uncle, Sam Kayes’s, construction company. The knowledge he gained about basements and how they are so much different than any room in the house intrigued him. He grew to manage a different basement company for over 6 years that covered the entire area of Wisconsin.
Buck then joined forces with Basement Systems out of Seymour, Connecticut, the fastest growing basement network in the world. Shortly after teaming up with Basement Systems, he started to win prestigious awards, and now has earned them for four years in a row, including the National Team Award for his own contributions to the other dealerships and his customers. The company has grown rapidly for years, and in 2013, Buck Buckley’s took 2nd place out of all of the Total Basement Finishing dealerships in the US and Canada!
Buck understands basements better than anyone; he is an accomplished business man with the credentials behind him. It is Buck’s goal to help improve the health and lives of everyone he can across southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois. His customers are his passion, and he ensures that they are happy every step of the way, from the time they first pick up the phone and call, to when the warranties are hand-delivered after the job is completed. He gives back to his community and his neighbors, and nothing makes him happier than to make everyone he runs across smile!

Check out the INCREDIBLE difference between the before and after pictures here! This family in Kenosha, Wisconsin, now has an absolutely beautiful living space with our waterproof hardwood-look floor.
How stunning is this new basement? Especially when you take a look at how it was before Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing finished it! This family in Kenosha, Wisconsin, can now feel great about having friends and family over to visit with a space like this to host in.
Having an additional bathroom in the basement is a wonderful addition, but when it leaks it becomes an additional hassle. Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing came in and redid the space with Everlast Vinyl Walls and Canyon Beige ThermalDry Flooring helped to eliminate this wetness! The transformation was dramatic for these South Milwaukee homeowners, and they were happy to have a functional bathroom back in the basement.
With grandchildren coming over on a regular basis it became necessary to turn their unfinished basement storage space into a fun space. We updated the walls to Everlast Walls, the flooring to ThermalDry Flooring and the older ceiling to our Linen ceiling, which is how we transformed this basement to just the space the homeowner needed. Now their grandchildren have a fun, safe place to go when they stop by Grandma's house.
This family from McHenry, Illinois, are thrilled with the results of their basement remodel! From a dreary, musty space to a beautiful entertainment room, Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing turned this basement into something gorgeous.
This family moved into their home in Milwaukee with a few children, so they wanted to finish their basement to add more space. One challenge that we faced was the placement of the basement stairs: they came right down the center of the basement. Our solution was to finish half of the basement, which was perfect! By leaving some space for storage, you are actually adding more value to your home, so these homeowners were happy with the result.
The neighborhood Traci and Darrell lived in had water issues, so when it came time to finish their basement we were the only choice. They went with vinyl walls and parquet tile like flooring to finish their space.
Ben from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, recently had a sewer back up and needed many things in his basement replaced! Wow, what a difference! From sewage on the floor to a gorgeous entertaining space, Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing truly made all the difference here.
After Ben from Milwaukee, Wisconsin called Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing, he got a lot of new spaces to utilize that will now stay comfortable, dry, inviting and warm!
This family in Muskego, WI, is loving their gorgeous new space! From musky carpet to a bright, clean living area, this basement is now absolutely beautiful.
The previous home owner had added a 3 season room which connected the house to the garage. This was an addition to the house, so it was not directly over the basement. In order to save money, a small area was dug down, thus creating a crawl space. Without encapsulating this space you have are allowing the natural dirt and other critters that live in it into your home. By having this encapsulated you will protect your home from the forces of nature and keep your home clean and insulated!
This family's son moved back in with them, so they needed a basement suite...for a 6 foot 6 inch boy! Now THAT is a lot of needed space. This full kitchen means he can live and eat downstairs without having to cramp mom and dad's style :) Now this Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin family is totally at peace!
This bathroom was for a 6 foot 6 kiddo...wow! That means a VERY high showerhead. This was no problem at all for Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing. We have tons of great options for ceilings, not just a dropped one, so we were able to give him plenty of space. This room looks incredible, especially when you see that this home in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, didn't have a bathroom there at all beforehand.
John and Karen, from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, LOVE the way their basement turned out and how much warmer and friendly it is now compared to before! The fact that they will never have to worry about water and mold anymore is also a HUGE plus. See for yourself! They met with the owner, Buck Buckley, and love that he holds up to his word unlike so many other companies out there. They got what he promised, and so much more.
Looking at Karen and John's basement from a different angle, this Lake Geneva, WI basement is so much more attractive now! The owners couldn't be happier!
It is incredible the difference that floors, walls, and ceilings can make! Just look at how much roomier this space in Waukesha, Wisconsin looks.
Adding painted walls, ceiling tiles with lights, and a beautiful floor makes a HUGE difference! Check out how much more gorgeous this space is now.
These Waukesha homeowners wanted to update the basement, so they contacted Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing. The materials we used not only created a positive contrast of colors, but it also created a clean flow in the basement. The Vinyl Everlast wall panels paired with the Linen Ceiling was the perfect combination. A once unusable space has transformed into a warm and inviting basement.
These homeowners in Waukesha did not like the red brick that made up their existing basement walls. We used our Zen Wall product to cover up the brick and brighten things up a bit. This drastically changed the look and feel of the basement!
These customers came to us looking to transform their basement from one with an inground pool to a more usable living space. Our team came up with a great design to make this space beautiful and useable again!
This couple in Waukesha, WI contacted us because they had an in-ground pool in their basement, and they wanted to utilize the space they had for additional living space. However, they also did not want to have to fill the pool in with concrete either. They wanted to finish the basement, but also keep the pool underneath just in case they ever decided to go back to the pool. We created a decking system so that we could build the basement on top of the pool without needing to fill it with concrete! With our EverLast Vinyl Walls, we created a spacious family room. Now, this family has a spacious family room with an in-ground pool underneath it!
These homeowners were looking to put a family room and bathroom into their basement. We were able to build them the basement of their dreams with our Everlast Vinyl walls and our MillCreek flooring in the color of Natural Oak. Now instead of only using their basement for storage, they have a beautifully finished basement that they can show off to family and friends!
This Sussex, WI family wanted to utilize the space they had in their basement for additional living space. With our EverLast Vinyl Walls and Natural Oak MillCreek Flooring, we completely transformed their basement from storage space to a family room, work out space, and half bathroom. Even the stairwell had a complete transformation!
This Hartland, WI family contacted us because they had water come into their basement. Their basement was finished with drywall, and the drywall was damaged and there was mold growing too. We were able to remove all of the mold and damaged drywall, and we replaced the drywall with our EverLast paintable walls. Now, if they ever get water in their basement again, they won't have to rip everything out and replace it!
These are pictures of a laundry room in Rockford, Illinois, that had become extremely moldy. Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing remodeled it with their Mold, Mildew, and Moisture resistant materials, and now this family will never have to worry about that problem again!
