About Modext Construction

Common Questions:

Well-crafted decks, patios with fire pits, professional landscaping, and versatile sunrooms or conservatories are known to offer a high return on investment.

Consider a pergola with climbing vines for a natural shade, a pavilion with outdoor curtains for elegance, or a sturdy gazebo with built-in seating and a fire pit for year-round use.

Install privacy fences, plant tall hedges, or build a gazebo or pavilion with drapes or latticed walls. Screen rooms can also add privacy while allowing you to enjoy the outdoors.

Yes, most localities require permits for outdoor structures to ensure they comply with building codes. Check with your local building department for specific requirements.

Understanding potential pitfalls, such as soil conditions, zoning restrictions, or logistical challenges, helps in planning more effectively.

While we strive to complete every project on time, unforeseen issues can arise. We prioritize open and honest communication, keeping you informed about any delays or problems and working diligently to resolve them as quickly and efficiently as possible.

For larger projects involving planning, material sourcing, permitting, and production, phasing is essential to facilitate effective planning and execution of each project stage. The different phases will be detailed in the estimate provided, ensuring clarity and structured progress throughout the project.

Consider the purpose of the structure, the terrain of your backyard, sun exposure, prevailing winds, privacy from neighbors, and proximity to your home for convenience.

The timeline can range from a few days for a pre-fabricated structure to several weeks for a custom design, depending on the complexity and size.

Costs can vary widely based on size, materials, and design complexity. On average, you might expect to spend anywhere from $20,000 to $70,000.

Adding a sunroom can increase your home’s value, provide a comfortable space for year-round enjoyment, and allow you to experience the outdoors without exposure to harsh weather conditions.

Loyal customers, they don’t just come back, they don’t simply recommend you, they insist that their friends do business with you.

Screen Room Addition

Our screen porch was totally destroyed in the tornado of 2023. Yerry and Joey did an amazing job putting our porch back together. Not only were they on time and kept us informed through the entire process, but the attention to detail was above and beyond any contractor we ever worked with. Not only was his pricing fair, but he helped us work with our insurance company to get the job done. I highly recommend MODERN EXTERIORS.

Kathleen M.

Jerry and Joey were professional, very knowledgeable and dependable. On top of these they were personable, flexable and very clean in their work.
All these made the replacement of our porch destroyed by a tornado in April 2023 relatively easy. Working with us in what we wanted and with our insurance company in the coverage, it was the easiest of repairs to our house.
I strongly recommend Modex.

STOP!! Look no further than MODEXT. Yerry, Milesa and their crew did a spectacular job. Keeping us informed in dealing with Veterans Affairs and required paperwork for our screened porch to Sunroom conversion. If you want a contractor who stays with you from start to end and makes sure it’s done right, look no further.

Fair Pricing

I interviewed 6-8 different contractors to replace wooden stairs and platform landings from my back yard to the beach below. Most wanted to impose on me their idea of what I should build and their prices reflected this. Yerry took the most time to understand my needs, wants and vision and then create a cost effective yet structurally solid design to accomplish this. Yerry’s communication throughout the project was very good. His primary carpenter, Joey is truly remarkable in his work ethic, knowledge and skill. Change orders were handled in a very formal and professional manner and online payments were convenient. Yerry is a hardworking, honest person that I would without hesitation use again for future outdoor deck, stair, etc needs.
