Meet our Forensic Roof Inspector, Steve Whitworth!

I was born and raised in the Longwood area. I have three kids, all boys and the most supportive girlfriend am and could ask for, Crystal. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing and exploring the beaches and parks of this beautiful state of ours!

My introduction to the roofing profession began in sales in July 2015. Being a man who believes in product knowledge, I began to study my craft and have been seeking a greater understanding ever since. I am a Haag licensed inspector. While training with Haag (an Engineering firm), I was trained to determine how documented severe weather, including hail and damaging winds, affect a wide variety of roof covering systems.  I have involved myself in each step of the process from sales, to insurance claims, the demolition, and replacement of storm-damaged roofs.

My goal for the end of the year is to complete my roofing license, my commercial Haag certification, and to continue to assist Dehlinger Construction to grow in the positive direction it is currently headed!


If you are getting a new roof, one of the toughest decisions that you will need to make is which color is right for you. Your decision is likely to affect other color choices that you will make for the next 20 years or longer, so take your time and choose a color that appeals to you the most.

Here are some ideas that you can use to choose the right color roof.

Consider Your Brick Color

If your home has brick, like a brick chimney or other features, you should choose a color that coordinates with it. You may change the color of your siding or opt for new paint color, but most people never change the color of their brick. Consider opting for dark grays, blacks, and deep browns. If you have multi-colored bricks, choose a solid roof color to create a unified appearance.

Think About Your Architectural Style

Think about the style of your home before choosing your roof color. For example, Cape Cod style homes often look best with dark gray, green or black roofs while country style homes often look best with cedar, pine, or redwood. As a secondary consideration, look beyond the color to the texture of the shingles to achieve the perfect look.

The Footprint You Want to Create

Another important consideration is the house’s footprint. If you want your home to look bigger, then opt for light-colored roofs. If you want your house to look smaller, then consider darker shingles. In particular, choosing lighter colored shingles often makes a home seem taller. If you are looking to sell your home in the future, however, opt for neutral colored roofs as they usually appeal to more buyers.

Contemplate the Weather

Roofers in Longwood will be the first to tell you that it can get scorching hot in central Florida. Choosing a light colored roof helps to lower your energy bill because it keeps your home cooler. You may also want to consider opting for choices that have a high ability to reflect the sun’s ultraviolet light as it can destroy a roof quickly.
