Family-Owned and Operated since 1968

Chaparral Builders, Inc. was founded in 1968 by Bill Jourdan.  Chaparral Builders quickly became an established business in Hobbs, New Mexico, as the result of Bill's commitment to quality and integrity.  Since then, Chaparral Builders, Inc. has acquired two more companies, Dalco, Inc. and Security Fence, Inc., both of which have become integral parts of our team.  When Bill Jourdan passed away in 2004, his son, John Jourdan, took over the companies and has continued to provide honest, direct, and reliable general contracting service to Hobbs and the surrounding areas.
