MATT SHORT Profile picture


Owner & Operator

Born in Traverse City, raised in Elk Rapids

We’re a third-generation, northern Michigan family business, specializing in shoreline preservation for over 25 years. 

"Matt and his team did a first class job on the seawall for our East Bay home. We have enthusiastically recommended Lake Shore to our neighbors and two of them have had seawalls built as well. The protection provided to our property in this time of record high lake levels is truly amazing. We highly recommend Matt and his company to anyone considering building a seawall."
