Lou Gustafson


With RCIinspect (Residential & Commercial Inspections), you are choosing a master certified inspector who provides high-quality home inspection services to the greater bay area and central valley. We take great pride in doing a thorough job and going beyond the clients’ expectations.

Our home inspection experience is inclusive. We encourage you to join us during the inspection, and to ask questions as you go. Having you with us on the inspection also gives us an opportunity to educate you with tips on home care and maintenance. For example, you can learn how to change the furnace filter, turn off the water, gas, and electricity in an emergency.

A home inspection is valuable, but unless the experience is well-documented, most people won’t remember all the important details. That’s why we provide a comprehensive written report to serve as your guide for as long as you own the home. It not only describes the house components and their condition, but also provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when.

Our report can also help you set up a home maintenance program to take care of one of the most significant investments most people make. Our goal is to ensure that you can live safely, comfortably, and efficiently in your new home.

What Clients are Saying

5 Stars

My inspector, Lou was absolutely amazing! He is extremely detailed and honest. As a first time home buyer these inspections can be overwhelming, but he did a great job making sure I understood everything. I would recommend him over and over again.

Jere W.

Los Gatos, CA

5 Stars

Lou was awesome! He went over everything he was able to get a look at, and explained very clearly what he could and could not do. He went over everything listed in the report in layman’s terms, and we were able to understand everything in the report (which we received the same day!). He reiterated more than once to call him should we have any further questions, but honestly, he was so thorough during the walk-through that we didn’t have any! Highly recommended!

My realtor got Lou to do an inspection for me on extremely short notice. Ultimate professional. His attention to detail is unmatched. He even replied to me twice on a holiday weekend! His rate is reasonable and he will answer any question you have. I just sent his report to my contractor and he just follows the report in regard to needed repairs.

I would definitely recommend him. You can’t go wrong!

Lou is great to work with. He is very flexible in scheduling and usually has no problem getting a property inspection scheduled within a couple of days of the request. He does a thorough job, providing a complete snapshot of the current condition of the home for your buyer (or seller) so the buyer can make an informed decision regarding the transaction. I recommend him to all of my customers. He provides lots of information during the inspection review to help the new home owners, there are invaluable in assisting them in transitioning from the renter mentality to the home owner role in caring for their new home.He is always very professional and easy to work with.
