"I have used Sean for the fourth time to do my outside lighting. I have been pleased with all the services he has done to my house. He has mounted Tv's for me, ceiling fans and recessed lighting as well and I am very pleased, everything works great. His work is immaculate and very, very reasonable in price! As usual, he has gone above and beyond my expectations with my lighting outside, my home looks BEAUTIFUL and I really love driving up to my house. What better way than to drive up to a beautiful home after a long hard day from work. The way he positioned the lights really accent my yard and home. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! He really does take pride in his work and offer suggestions to make it look nice and he's very honest, very knowledgable. I wanted to add more but his suggestion to accent only certain areas to make it stand out versus what I originally wanted which would have been an overkill to my house with too much light. I think most electricians would just install everything I asked just so that they can make more money without really caring how it would look like, but not Sean he is very honest and I really appreciate the fact that his concern was not about making more money off of me because he could have but that he was throwing ideas and suggestions to make my house look nice! I will forever use him and only him for my current and future services that I will need to get done and I will recommend him to all of my friends and family. Once you find a great technician for any service YOU HAVE TO HOLD ON TO THEM!!! Again I recommend him to all of you who reads this, tell him that Nadia Castro recommended him to you!"

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.
