During a recent episode of the Kid Contractor Podcast, guest Dan Wheeler shared his experience in the fence industry and discusses the revolutionary technique that is changing the industry - the driving post technique.
Dan shares how his company, River City Fence, had their best year yet due to their increased efficiency and optimization. He attributes this success to learning from other experts in the field, including those on social media, and implementing their techniques. One of the techniques that has made a significant impact on their business is the driving post technique.
Dan explains that in areas where concrete frosting heave is an issue, such as up north, driving posts has been a proven and reliable technique for over 65 years. However, it was not widely known until recently when a fence company manager started sharing their techniques on social media. The driving post technique involves driving a post anywhere from 5-20 feet into the ground using a core machine and then sleeving it with vinyl or wood.
This technique is revolutionizing the fence industry by cutting down on labor and materials. Instead of digging 12-inch round holes and pouring concrete, a 15-inch round hole is dug, and the post is driven into the ground, reducing the need for concrete and labor. This technique also eliminates the need for experienced professionals, as even high school students can learn to drive posts and sleeve them with vinyl.
In conclusion, the driving post technique is a game-changer for the fence industry, and we can expect to see more companies adopting this method. As Dan mentioned, this technique has revolutionized their business, and it could do the same for yours.
