Scot 'Buck' Buckley from Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing

Title: Owner

Hometown: Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

Scot 'Buck' Buckley from Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing

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!

    Jamal & Michelle B. of Milwaukee, WI

    Customer Testimonial

              Jamal and Michelle were expecting their first child and felt that their Milwaukee, WI home was just too small for their growing family. They had an unfinished basement that they would like to turn into extra living space, but they were extremely concerned that increasingly frequent basement flooding episodes in the area would make it very hard, if not impossible for them to finish their basement, only to have it ruined by a likely flooding episode. Then they heard about Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing. Total Basement Finishing wall, flooring and ceiling solutions don't absorb water. They are 100% waterproof, which means they will not get ruined by the typical basement flooding episode. Being entirely made with inorganic materials, they will not support mold growth. Total Basement Finishing products made it possible for the couple to add the much needed extra living space to their home, with a safe, dry and kid-friendly play area for the new baby and room to entertain friends and neighbors. Jamal was very happy with the way Buck Buckley and his team accommodated changes in their budget, and Michelle was impressed with how punctual, respectful, courteous the crew was delivering a finished basement so clean and neat they were able to move into the space immediately!

    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!
