Making TruProtect a Reality
One day in 1982, when Mike McDonald was a student at Texas A&M University, he volunteered to help friends move into a new home. While taking boxes into the attic, he was struck by how much hotter the attic was than the 70 degrees within the house, or even the 80 degrees outside. At that moment, he began thinking about how to keep the attic from becoming so oppressively hot. By 1983, Mike had developed a product to solve that problem. Thus TruProtect was born.
