Chris Gonzales


Hello fellow Coloradans. My name is Chris Gonzales and I am proud to call myself a co-owner of Colorado Roofing Solutions. Originally born in New Mexico, I have lived in Colorado since I was a year old. In my mind that makes me a Native.

I joined the roofing industry in 2006, working in various areas from installation, sales, project management, and operations management. While building my knowledge of the roofing process, I also studied Business Management at Regis Jesuit University which has helped provide me with the tools and skills needed to successfully operate Colorado Roofing Solutions. I’m often asked why I decided to take a chance on starting a roofing company, especially in such a competitive market. My answer is simple. I love small business and I love making a difference and helping people. It just so happens that I’m able to accomplish both of these with Colorado Roofing Solutions.

As far as spare time, owning a business and having 2 young children leaves little time for anything else. I do love attending Rockies games with my future little Hall of Famer. I’m also currently helping my grandfather restore a 1965 Mustang Coupe, a family heirloom that is long overdue for some TLC.

Clayton Putman


Hello Denver!  My name is Clayton, and I’m one of the owners at Colorado Roofing Solutions!  After graduating from Texas A&M with an Engineering degree in 2008, I moved to Denver to pursue the outdoor lifestyle and start my career.  I quickly landed in the roofing industry, working as an Outside Sales rep for Allied Building Products for 6 years.  This job gave me great insight into the very challenging industry of commercial and residential roofing, and eventually inspired the creation of Colorado Roofing Solutions in 2014.  My thought behind the creation of CRS was simple:  I wanted to offer Denver residents a company they could count on by bringing honesty, product knowledge, and customer service to our great city.  Feedback allows me to improve my business, so please contact me if you have thoughts you would like to share.

In my spare time you will find me hanging out with my amazing wife!  We spend our time lifting weights, rock climbing, and camping/hiking the Rocky Mountains.  These adventures have us chasing down great cups of coffee, traveling to make memories, and documenting our journey along the way!  My other fun pursuits include Brazilian jiu-jitsu, learning the guitar, and expanding my financial knowledge.  I find great reward in the challenge of learning and implementing new skills!

Michael Laurila

Project Manager

Greetings! My name is Michael Laurila, and I am the Project Manager for Colorado Roofing Solutions. Originally from the upper Michigan (proud Yooper), I graduated with a degree in Construction Project Management in 2010. Upon graduating, I threw a dart at the map and moved to Denver, Colorado.

I have always had a passion for anything to do with buildings and problem solving. From real estate, to energy efficiency, building science, designing and creating 3D images, and now storm restoration projects. I have since found a company who is as passionate as I am when it comes to building projects.

Outside of the day-to-day life with Colorado Roofing Solutions, you can find me staying active and enjoying Colorado. I really enjoy live music, CrossFit, golfing 18 holes, taking a yoga class, and spending time with my wonderful wife.

I look forward to working with you on your next project!
