Patrick and his team were reliable, super helpful and thorough. They rolled with the changes of the day as is typical with a move. (we had rain, they took apart and put together furniture and helped with clean up stuff too.) I would call on Patrick again and again for moving and random tasks at home or office. He worked hard and I am so grateful to him for his help!

Albert transferred about 15 home videos (VHS, 8mm, and DVD) to digital files. He was very responsive to all of my communications, and the quality of work was excellent. I know that it was hard to get a few of my tapes to even work, but he was able to transfer all of them. I also did the project remotely. I sent him the tapes and he sent them back to me, so there was an added element of convenience.

I needed help for a last minute job taking down a rabbit hutch and chicken coop that had been sitting on the property for 6 years. Harp was quick to respond and came out the next morning to help me meet a deadline for a very important inspection. He got everything done on time and was a pleasure to work with. I have an in home preschool, and he didn’t mind the kids watching from a distance. Will definitely hire again!

Jeff is professional, meticulous, puntual, smart, pleasant and most importantly an excellent TV mounter! We presented him with a tricky task of mounting a 75" TV in a section of a built-in unit with very little clearance. Jeff was up for the challenge and despite a number of unexpected challenges (i.e., electrical outlet in exactly the wrong spot), Jeff completed the job easily and without frustration. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Jeff for your home theater needs. We plan to use him again to optimize our computer/home network as well. Money very well spent!!

For all of your handywork needs,Chaojun is your man. The BEST and most prompt service I've ever experienced - efficient from start to finish, and clever with finding creative work-around solutions to assembly or repair services where most others would give up. He even helped me put up my Christmas decor, which was above and beyond the requested service. Very trustworthy (enough so to have him work on projects even when I'm not at home), and he will offer realistic advice and consultation if something else needs to be purchased in order to complete your project. I hired him for a large interior re-design project that included complex assembly, mounting, and light electrical work. Would refer him to friends and colleagues without hesitation!

German responded almost immediately to my post and we arranged for him to come to my home to give me an estimate of my project. He arrived as promised, gave me a fair price, and was sensitive to my schedule and timing. Couldn't be more satisfied.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

My husband and I had to renovate the home for AIRBNB and we had to get everything organize in a timely manner. Davis showed up promptly to help us clean the house and redo the rooms. He also went out of his way to assist us with prepping the living room. We totally recommend him for anyone who needs a reliable handyman.

Such an easy process. Milko did a home visit within the week and provided the quote before even leaving. Setting up an appointment was super easy. On the day of the work, he arrived punctual and promptly proactively asked questions when anything ambiguous popped up, ensuring no strange assumptions were made. He was very efficient. AWESOME experience. Very pleased with the job Milko did and the process from start to finish was easy. Have nothing but great things to say about the Milko job and I'll gladly use him again when needed and have no problem recommending them to friends and family.

Kris is personable, honest and friendly. He will never exceed his brief without first referring to his customer, and his advice is always based on what is best for the customer's pocket, not his. His workers are skilled, happy, and hard-working. It's a pleasure, always, to have his team work on my home.

We hired Howard to wall mount a bathroom cabinet as well as a few miscellaneous items around our home. He showed up on time and well-prepared with his own tools. He was polite and respectful and made sure to ask exactly where and how we wanted the items mounted. He made quick work of the tasks and was out in a jiffy. We would definitely hire him again for any sort of handyman type work! Thanks, Howard!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who wall mounts TVs?

Electricians, handymen and TV installation specialists may all provide television mounting services. The person who does the mounting should be qualified and knowledgeable about basic construction concepts as well as working with audiovisual cables. In general, no specialized certificates are required to provide television mounting services, but as always do your diligence and make smart hiring decisions.

It’s important to find an experienced professional who will ensure the TV wall mount meets building code. Most regions have fire codes that don’t permit high-voltage power cords behind walls (low-voltage wires like HDMI and video cables are generally acceptable). A basic wall mount on drywall may take approximately one to two hours, while more complex mounts on brick or stone with hidden cables can take three or more hours. If you need more electrical outlets installed near your entertainment system, you may want to hire an electrician. Check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to mount a TV?

Elevate your home style with television mounting services. The national average price for television mounting services ranges between $100 and $130. Factors that can affect cost are the material of the wall you want the TV mounted on, whether you want the wires hidden, and any additional entertainment system connection you desire. It probably costs more to mount a TV on brick, stone or concrete than on drywall or plaster due to the added labor required to drill holes. For example, a company may charge an additional $99 to mount a TV on a brick wall. Here are some examples of average costs for television mounting services:

  • Basic TV wall mount: $40. Does not include bracket, device connection or strip management.
  • TV wall mount: $119. Includes bracket, mounting services, strip management system (for concealing external wires), and connection of all entertainment devices.
  • TV wall mount with wires hidden inside wall: $139.
  • Installation of additional electrical outlet: $65.
  • TV wall mount over fireplace with wires hidden: $179-$249.
  • TV wall mount and up to 5 speakers wall-mounted with hidden wires: $399.

Can a TV be mounted above a fireplace?

You may be able to mount your flat screen TV above your fireplace for a more streamlined look in your living room. In fact, TV mounting professionals can hang your flat screen TV flush with a wall or from a tilting or full-motion bracket mount in any room in your home. A tilting or full-motion mount may be the best option above a fireplace so you can tilt the TV down for the best viewing angle. Whether the wall above your fireplace is brick, drywall, concrete, stone or plaster, most television mounting services can accommodate your needs. Hardier wall surfaces like concrete or brick will require more labor and expertise to mount, and will likely have a higher price range.

If you want your AV and cable wires hidden in the wall, you will also pay a higher price due to the added time and skill to properly drill the holes and run wires. Before mounting your TV above your fireplace, consult with the manufacturer about necessary distance from heat sources. If the space above your fireplace gets too warm, another location could be better for the longevity of your TV. Your television mounting services may take between one and two hours, or more depending on your home theater setup.

How much does it cost for surround sound installation?

If you’re installing your dream home theater, you want the perfect sound system to round it out. The cost for surround sound installation will vary based on the speaker system you select, the amount of wiring and prep required for the job, and labor rates in your region. Home theater installation specialists can advise on the best surround sound speakers for your space and the technology you are using. Here are some examples of average home theater installation costs and the cost of surround sound speakers:

  • TV wall mount and up to 5 wall-mounted speakers with hidden wires: $399.
  • 60-inch TV and small home system: $2,080.
    • Equipment cost: $1,680.
      • Five box speakers and subwoofer: $500.
      • Three HDMI wires: $30.
      • Surround amp: $250.
      • 60-inch TV and bracket: $900.
      • Labor cost: $400 Including setup, wiring and TV mounting.
  • Projector and screen system plus audio wiring throughout home: $12,900.
    • Equipment cost: $9,900.
      • Approximate wire costs: $2,700.

      • 110-inch screen: $600.
