Who We Are
Isothermal Protective Coatings, Inc. (IPC) was founded in 1981 by Gary Hollingshead (an organic chemist), his wife Ruth and a few investors. The founders pursued a cost-effective product that could be used to coat weather-worn roofs to repair leaks and prevent the exorbitant costs of replacing entire roofs.
In the 1990s, IPC developed additional products that also addressed the needs of the commercial roofing market. These new solutions allowed IPC to expand how it positively served clients, while eliminating the time, money and landfill burden of re-roofing.
In 2019, the Hollingsheads sold IPC to Jocelyn and Derron Cook, who now serve at the helm of this innovative, small business. The new leaders have invigorated IPC with a growth mindset while nurturing its culture for artisan craftmanship. Today, IPC remains committed to producing exceptional roofing products that are backed by the most comprehensive systems warranties in the industry to include up to 2-inch hail resistance. The leaders have put together aggressive plans to promote IPC products to:
- Tier 1 roofing applicators,
- Facility owners and managers of retail, office, industrial, healthcare and educational buildings, and
- Consultants and architects.
As a family-run business, IPC remains at its original location in Pearland, Texas and works with roofing experts across the United States. Those interested in learning more about IPC and how its products can be used to address a whole host of commercial roofing needs are encouraged to contact IPC for a conversation with one of their industry experts.
