Staying a-float

AUSTIN - Before starting his own business, Fernando Chavez worked for several drywall companies learning the ins and outs of the drywall business. Now the proud owner and president of F & V Drywall Acoustic Inc., Chavez keeps his focus on providing quality work.





    F & V started out as a two-man crew.  Today, just short of 4 years later, the company has grown to employ 40 employees. 
    “When Fernando started the business, he took on 20 jobs.  They were all small to medium size,” says Bianca Chavez, estimator and office manager.  “Then he decided we should focus on medium to larger jobs, but only a few so we weren’t spread to thin.”  Currently the company has five projects underway. 
    “Owning my own drywall business has always been one of my goals.  Now that I have my own business, I make sure I give our 100 percent in each job that we do.”
     The company has completed office buildings, schools, restaurants, retail stores, banks and medical offices.  And specializes in demolition, drywall, metal framing, acoustical ceiling, grid, finishes and raco.
    The majority of the work F & V performs is commercial, but is currently expanding into residential.  The company has an experienced painting to crew to compliment their drywall workmanship to ensure a job that is 100 percent satisfactory to their project owners.
     With Fernando out in the field, working hands-on, and Bianca in the office estimating, ordering materials, paying bills and payroll, the young couple find themselves working seven days a week.  But when they are able to get a way for a short break, they enjoy escaping to the coast to get in some much deserved fishing and relaxation.
