Determining building surface frac. & (im)pervious surface fraction within buffer zone

I am new to ArcGIS. I want to determine the building surface fraction, the pervious surface fraction (bare soil, vegetation, water), and impervious surface fraction (rock, paved) within a radius of 250 meters around weather stations.

All topographical features are added as separate layers (.lyr files). What I mean to say is that water, roads, trees, grassland, railways, etc. are all added as separate layers. Further, I have already created the 250 meter radius buffer zones.

Is there a way that by only selecting certain layers, you can determine how much area it covers within each buffer zone?

Thank you very much for your help.
