About the Owner

Owner of Alpha Foundations

Matt Shanley

Matt founded Alpha Foundations in 2002 and oversees every part of our operations. His background in the Geotechnical Engineering industry well equips him for subsurface soils and foundation design.

As a Certified Building Contractor and Foundation Repair Specialist, he has designed thousands of solutions for his many happy customers.

For more than 10 years, Alpha Foundations Owner Matt Shanley has been envisioning the ways he could change the foundation industry in northern Florida.

As fate would have it, he came in contact with a man experienced with helical anchors. The dream began to quickly take shape as Shanley acknowledged the local need for helical services due to the soil’s composition.

Do You Need A Foundation Repaired?

Expansive soils, common to northern Florida and southern Georgia are unstable and a large contributor to much of the area’s reported foundation issues.

In this area, we have something commonly called pipe clay — it’s an expansive soil — when it gets wet, it swells and when it gets dry it contracts,” explains Shanley.

Although many homeowners avoid fixing cracks or other foundation/structural issues, Shanley reminds homeowners the importance foundations have to the building’s overall health and stability.

If the cause of the problems isn't identified and repaired, the foundation will continue to worsen until it’s completely settled or dysfunctional."
