Living in Sacramento county and looking for help in renovating your living space? Do not know how to start the process of construction and where to get high-quality service in California? Want to make sure your project development will be happening on time? Luckily, you ran into A+ Construction & Remodeling, an experienced ADU builder Sacramento!

Our team of professionals can easily renovate the existing home or deal with the adjacent territory of the house. For instance, if you are thinking of creating an accessory dwelling unit in your primary residence, the group of experts from A+ Construction & Remodeling in Sacramento, CA, can help you deal with the new construction in a professional way.

Arden-Arcade ADU Builders

An accessory dwelling unit, also referred to as ADU or a “secondary dwelling unit,” is an additional place for living that comes as a complement to the already existing space of your house. In Sacramento, homeowners tend to choose the services of the A+ Construction company to receive the best results and reasonable pricing. Building ADUs is no novelty for the professional A+ crew of specialists, as the team has profound knowledge and expertise in the field.

ADU Contractor Arden-Arcade

You will be consulted on the matter of setback requirements if needed as well. If you are new in this field, let us briefly explain what we mean when referring to the setback requirements.

In each county, including Sacramento (CA), there are some rules to be obeyed when constructing accessory dwelling units. We are not talking about such issues as fire safety, for instance (however, fire safety is also an important part of creating a living place, so, though you are not obliged to put the fire sprinklers in attached ADUs or detached ADUs, we still recommend getting those). For more detailed information, check California state law.

Under setback requirements, you should understand the following things (examples):

  • Entire ADU must be at least 60-feet from the front property line or comply with two-story setbacks;
  • For a one-story building, there is no side yard or rear yard setback
  • For a two-story building, there must be s 3-foot side yard and rear yard setback, or a property’s zone, which is less.

ADU Unit Construction Arden-Arcade

If your primary residence is a house, and it is in your property, then you are lucky because creating an ADU means mainly pluses for you. Of course, it will take some time and money, but in the end, you will receive an additional piece of property that will be able to bring your money.

Additional rental income

Building accessory dwelling units usually mean an increase in the rental income. The logic is rather simple: getting an ADU means an enlargement of the general lot size, and an enlarged lot size means that you can use these square feet to rent them out. For example, you can suggest a student who entered the university in your city live in the attached ADU to receive additional rent payments.

Family enlargement

If you already have grown children who are about to start a family by themselves, preparing a single-unit dwelling might become not only a  generous gift for the younger generations but also is a smart solution. The chances are that your children will need your help when they start living separately, and a detached ADU or the attached ADUs options will allow them to live on their own but get your piece of advice when necessary in seconds. Also, this is a matter of money — having a secondary dwelling unit is cheaper than renting the house.

Or, if you have elderly relatives who require your help, you can build an accessory dwelling unit and keep them close to you.

Personal needs

If you practice a remote work format and do not go to the office every day, you might need personal space for your working goals. If your primary dwelling unit does not meet your expectations in this sense, you can always use either an attached ADU or a detached ADU. These additional buildings can be arranged the way you need: get a working table and a working chair, some cracks, and enough lighting, and this working space will become salvation not to be disturbed by other family members.

Our professionals from A+ Construction & Remodeling in Sacramento (California) are ready to prepare an individual ADU project for you. Our experts will take care of every peculiarity on every step of the project development: we will help you figure out the perfect ADU size in square feet, the perfect location of the construction (above the garage or as a converted garage), plumbing and electricity issues.

Arden-Arcade ADU Construction Company

From East Sacramento to West Sacramento, no matter where exactly your property is located, our masters are ready to help you with your ADU.

We are ready to guarantee high-quality service, we will comply with your project from start to finish, and you will be able to check the process of building your ADU step by step. Usually, these steps include the following:

  • Designer showroom

Our professionals will help you visualize your lot coverage in detail. No matter if you choose attached or detached ADUs, your ideas have to be converted into a real plan. The future building will be visualized with a special program so that we, as a contractor, can consider all peculiarities of an ADU and count all the costs. By the way, we have one of the most affordable price lists on the market!

  • Planning

Once we agree on the visualization, our experts from A+ Construction & Remodeling will prepare an individual plan to comply with the building. This plan will include details on where bedroom, cooking, and bathroom accessories should be located.

  • Choosing the materials

Choosing the materials is one of the most important steps when preparing for the works themselves. The choice of materials will help you better navigate the final costs. Our company will show you which materials will serve your purposes better because this is really a subject to consideration. If you want your property to serve you for years, stick to the higher-quality samples.

  • Law & permission

We have been creating ADUs for years now; that is why we definitely know what kind of ADUs allowed you can think of. Also, since there are some rules to follow when creating either attached or detached ADUs, professional contractors should bring the customer up to speed on this subject. Immovable property laws in Sacramento might be complicated for an ordinary family; that is why you can count on us when creating an ADU.

So, you might not know that it is prohibited to have the attached ADUs that exceed half of the existing residence. Or, if you have detached ADUs, for them, it is prohibited to exceed a total of 1200 square feet. No matter what kind of ADU option you choose, it must be created at a certain distance from the property line (the property line defines the limits of your property, you can count them in square feet as well).

ADU Building Arden-Arcade

  • Low costs

The cost of the work is something people usually think about at first when considering getting an ADU. “What if we cannot afford it?” — this is the main question they are usually asking. A+ Construction & Remodeling is a contractor that understands this psychology. That is why our price list is budget-friendly, one of the most affordable in the surrounding areas!

  • Time

A customer never wants to wait too long to get the ADU, no matter if it is going to be a single unit dwelling or a lot sized bigger. Also, a person who has never tried creating an ADU on one’s own might have the wrong impression of the duration of this activity: one might think that the process might take years! Our goal is to demonstrate that even these complicated works can be done quickly but qualitatively.

  • Expertise & professionalism

We have been created ADUs for a long period of time, and our team includes only masters of their crafts.  We are always ready to answer all your questions considering your future ADU and to help make your dreams come true in a highly professional way. To join our crew, experts have to pass the selection, and this procedure allows us to pick the best of the best.

  • Saving nerves

Think about doing all the building works on your own: design, planning, choosing the materials, and then the work itself… You will not only spend half of your life performing all these actions but also will eventually find yourself in the psychotherapist’s office, telling him about nightmares devoted to the ADU. We do not want this to happen; that is why we strongly recommend you to trust all these complicated tasks to be done by professionals from A+ Construction and Remodeling.

Prefab ADU Construction

No matter where your ADU will be located, whether it is a side yard or a rear yard, or whether it is 500 square feet or a lot sized bigger, you will need a wide range of services to be performed before you can actually use it.

This includes not only the “external work” like building the “body” but also the “internal work” as well, including plumbing and electricity issues. Without these aspects, your ADU can hardly be “inhabited”.

That is why you need professionals with experience in all these areas. Our experts from A+ Construction and Remodeling will help you with the water pipes, toilet or shower installation, lighting, and all the stuff you might potentially need here.

ADU Housing

If you address A+ Construction & Remodeling specialists, you will get a number of high-quality services at affordable prices. Neither will you have to visit numerous one-stop-shop options looking for the perfect materials for your house remodeling, nor will you damage the existing space with an inexperienced approach to the renovation.

Once you choose our team of professionals, you will get an individual ADU project that will satisfy all your needs, and the chances are that it will be rather popular in the surrounding neighborhood. No matter where your primary residence is: in Arden-Arcade directly or somewhere in Fair Oaks: we provide services on the entire territory of the Sacramento area, including West Sacramento and corresponding surrounding areas. Tell us one story of what you want to receive, and our crew of designers and constructors will make your dream concerning the apartment come true.

General Overview of the city

Arden-Arcade is a relatively small city, perceived as a part of the Sacramento metropole and located in the state of California, US. The city covers almost 18 square miles, which is more than 5 times smaller than the square of the Sacramento city. Around 100,000 people reside in Arden-Arcade, and they are distributed in the density of 5.4 people per one square mile, which is somewhat more than the national averages. The racial distribution is quite typical for this region: Arden-Arcade is populated generally by White population, followed by African Americans and Asians.

The climate is gentle and mild, the winters are warm, the mid-season is comfortable, and the summer is warm to hot and very sunny, with low precipitation levels, while most of the rains take place in winter.

Decision to reside in Arden-Arcade is a great idea for families with children or young professionals. Before planning whether to relocate to the city or not, make sure you compare information about cost of living, the situation with employment, and amenities. In general, the livability score of Arden-Arcade is 63 out of 100, however, in certain aspects the grades are higher: for example, weather conditions and amenities. There are plenty of grocery stores, parks, restaurants and cafes, coffee shops, and other places for spending leisure time. The total livability score is not very high because of such aspects as education level, employment rates, and cost of living.

Real Estate Pricing

If you consider the average home prices and the overall real estate affordability in Arden-Arcade, CA, the median prices for homes are around $300 thousand, which is significantly lower if we start comparing it to the California median real estate prices (lower up to a quarter). However, when matching the price to the income of the residents, it appears to be higher than the California levels by several percent.

Before buying property in Arden-Arcade, we recommend that you pay attention to the property appreciation rates — it will help you find out, if such a purchase has a major chance to become a reliable investment in the future. In a previous year this rate reaches 5.6%, while for the past 5 years your property in the city of Arden-Arcade will get the appreciation rate of 9.6%.


Originally Arden-Arcade used to belong to Mexico, then granted and negotiated, and finally purchased for $1.5 million by the Sacramento Valley Colonization Company in 1910. At the beginning of the XX century, the place was not crowded: here lived several dozens of people, well-known throughout the state for their high-quality horse breeding business. The name Arcade comes from the Arcade Creek — a major meadow or oaks: they were used to tie up horses that were transferred by rail to other parts of the country. The shape of the oak trees resembled several arches that support walls, what we call an arcade in architecture. This is a beautiful explanation of the city name’s origin.

The early residential homes and neighborhoods appeared in Arden-Arcade in the 1920s and 1930s, when the city started expanding. Nevertheless, most of the residential buildings were erected much later, in 1970s and 1980s, so the city planning, and buildings are relatively new.

Shopping and Entertainment

Arden-Arcade becomes a center of many luxury suburbs of Sacramento, this way it is explainable why the place becomes a popular shopping area and one of the key retail areas for the people living in Sacramento.

Locals appreciate shopping at Fair Oaks Boulevards — there are plenty of stores there with clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelries, and more. Also, pay attention to the Pavilions Shopping Center as a designated shopping area full of lucrative offers in the shop windows.

For eating out, one of the most popular places is Loehmann’s Plaza with its cafes and restaurants. You may also want to visit the Coldwater Creek and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

If you visit the northern part of Arden-Arcade, you can check out the Town & Country Village at Fulton and Marconi Avenue.

As for a large indoor shopping mall, you can visit Country Club Plaza to see what interesting stores are located inside. If you are a sports fan, visit Sports Chalet and a recently renovated Off Broadway Shoes offering a great variety of goods according to their names. Another point of attraction for shoppers is Arden Fair Mall, and the Roseville Galleria.

Arden-Arcade has a lot to offer for a larger purchase as well: there are multiple car dealers with the offices and showrooms located on Fulton Avenue and on Auburn Boulevard. There is hardly any car brand, which is not presented by a dealer in Arden-Arcade.

The elite entertainment in the city is presented by a private Del Paso Country Club, founded a hundred years ago. The club offers a golf course, a luxurious fitness center and other amenities for an active recreation and leisure. The membership is invitation-only.


Arden-Arcade is suitable for families, as the place has many high schools with average to high ratings. The most popular ones include Rio Americano High School, El Camino Fundamental High School or Sacramento Country Day School. There are multiple reviews about these and other schools, which can help make the correct decision.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Is building an ADU worth it?

    If you are still wondering whether accessory dwelling units are worth it or not, we have an answer: do not hesitate, just get it! Such an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) will increase your general lot coverage, and you will be able to use this new construction the way you need. Since you are the one who defines the ADU size, you can choose how many square feet your accessory dwelling unit (ADU) will occupy and where it will be located. Anyway, this cost-effective additional building might be enough for the living of the entire family!

    What can I use my accessory dwelling unit for?

    As the owner of the accessory dwelling unit (ADU), you can use your lot coverage the way you need as a complement to your primary residence. You can use such a building for work purposes if you organize it as a working space, or you can suggest younger family members live there if they seek freedom. There are numerous ADUs allowed, and they are rather cost-effective, so you can ask a contractor to develop the project for your personal needs here in California.

    What are ADUs allowed in Sacramento?

    There is a number of ADUs allowed in Sacramento, California. However, local legislation indeed has some restrictions and rules to follow. For example, junior ADU units must be contained in a single-unit dwelling. Under junior ADUs, we usually understand units that do not exceed 500 square feet and those which are contained in a single-family primary dwelling unit. Or, for instance, parking space requirements for the accessory dwelling units are the same as for the main residence: one parking space per bedroom.
