In the fifteen years that Timothy and Laurie A. lived in their Northbrook, IL home, their finished basement had flooded three times. The third time, while Timothy carried hundreds of pounds of wet, moldy carpet and drywall out of the ruined and musty-smelling basement, he decided that he needed a change. They wanted a room for their children to spend time in, but finishing the basement with organic and water absorbent materials just wasn't working from them, even when the basement was not being ruined by flood. "It smelled like a basement, full of mildew, even though we tried to use a dehumidifier."
With that in mind, they started to research and look for basement finishing options that were both waterproof and mold resistant -- but they also wanted it to look good. That is how they learned about Buck Buckley and Total Basement Finishing products. Timothy was personally pleased with all the attention that they received from the design consultants. Then spent hours with the couple, going over every detail of the project, and answering to every question they had. "They literally sat at our kitchen until midnight on two separate occasions, answering all of our questions, and we had a lot of questions." says Timothy. "I didn't feel like I was being sold at any one point. They showed me the materials, gave me choices."
The couple was really impressed with how quick and diligently they worked to finish their basement. While their basement was being finished, they also had another company working on some remodeling projects upstairs. The upstairs work started six months prior to the basement finishing project. Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing delivered an entire finished basement with a complete bathroom in only a fraction of that time.
