A true Texan with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Ron DanielARC Roofing is a service line of ARC Abatement founded by Ron Daniel, in his Waco, Texas garage in 1990. ARC Roofing specializes in residential and commercial roofing. Under Daniel’s direction, the company completed three million hours of asbestos abatement work over 25 years. Engineering News-Record named ARC Abatement a top 10 asbestos abatement firm.

After hearing endless complaints from contractors about the unreliability of roofing companies, Daniel decided to bring the “ARC-way” to the roofing industry in 2013. ARC Roofing was born, and we are now a leader in all areas of commercial roofing, historic building restoration, and storm damage repair.

With a goal of growth, Daniel led ARC into a related field when he launched ARC Oil and Gas Services in 2013.  In 2016, Daniel acquired C&C Coatings and Construction and merged it with ARC Oil and Gas to expand services to the oilfield. The acquisition brought on services that include NORM remediation, construction of access roads, and rust removal.

Daniel is married with two children. He enjoys playing golf and following the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys.
