You would do it like this:
            DateTime testUTC = DateTime.UtcNow;
            Row.ModifiedOut = testUTC.AddHours(intHoursDifference);

Open in new window

In .NET the DateTime object has many built-in methods for manipulating the date and time. A full list of them can be found here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.datetime_methods(v=vs.110).aspx
