WOW! Seriously I couldn't imagine better service. This is no joke. We had Nima come downtown to our new loft and he did an amazing job setting up our TV wall mount and theater system. He was on time, kind and very thorough with is work. He is truly an expert and totally knocked it out of the park. This is an inspired review, know that his 5 star ratting and his list of awesome reviews is no joke. Nima is the man and he can handle all of your TV, wall mount, home theater system needs. Thank you Nima!!

Javier contacted me quite quickly after I submitted my request and offered a very competitive quote. He was able to come hook up the receiver for my home theater within a few hours after that. Polite, courteous and knowledgeable of the work that needed to be done, he was also very thorough and quite patient in ensuring that I understood how to now use the receiver once he left me to my own devices even making sure the notes I took were accurate. I will definitely be contacting him again once we buy the subwoofer that will compliment the home theater in our home. I will also refer him to anyone I know who needs assistance in this area. So happy with the service and the whole experience here today. Thank you, Javier.

Awesome service -- Gabriel and Noe installed a light fixture in my living room. We couldn't be happier with their work. Their prices were very fair -- even for an unanticipated trip to Home Depot for parts. I would definitely hire them again.

Finally finished an eyesore we’d been staring at for months! Replaced baseboards after putting in new flooring. Punctual, great work, even made 2 trips to pick up supplies. No input needed as to what was required to compete the job which made this stress free. We will definitely use again to complete projects in our home!!

Oshane mounted my TV and soundbar to the wall. He did an excellent job. He was very meticulous and took his time to make sure it was done right. He managed to hide the cables behind the wall as I requested. He was very professional. I would definitely hire him again for any TV mounting/home theater setup in the future.

After looking at a few bids to install a mail slot through a stucco wall into my garage, I contacted Jamie on Saturday morning (June 23rd), and he was at my home by noon. He's a great guy and, more importantly, he knew exactly what to do, had the tools to do the job, and he did a great job. In addition, he created a 9" wood slide so that the mail would drop into a basket. Although it sounds like it was an easy job, Jamie had to make precise measurements to ensure that the slot was where it needed to be, and he then had to cut through the thick stucco. On the whole, it was an excellent (and very affordable) experience, and we will definitely be calling him in the future. In fact, our neighbor saw Jamie working and liked the end-result so much that he asked for Jamie's card. Thanks very much, Jamie. Let me know if you need any recommendations. David

Cedric and his wife are a great team. They showed up happy and ready to help. They assessed the situation and helped us to figure out what would be the best resolution to fixing our ceiling fans. While at our home they helped us explore and select some smart light switches so that we could turn lights on while we're away so that our dog wouldn't have to be in the dark. Overall, I would say the experience was like having a friend do some electrical work in our home. I would definitely call them again in the future.

I needed a lock changed out with a stripped screw and a closet shelf reinstalled; and I needed it done ASAP. Mark was great! He made himself available within a couple of hours, he was on time and completed the work efficiently and quickly. He was extremely respectiul, takng off hs shoes before entering my home and he even cleaned up after himself. He also went above and beyond installing a extra security measure for my safety incase of a break in which I really appreciated. I would definetly recommend Mark for any handyman work needed. He is a very competent and a super nice guy. Thank you for your help! Kirsten

Everything went well with Sam at ONBOARD.IT.TECH. He responded very quickly and got me an appointment within two days. It took just a couple hours to install my home theater set up, and he made sure it was perfect before he left, testing every part of the projector, and making sure the cables were hidden properly and nicely. I would recommend him to anyone!

I had an old system in my house leftover after a recent remodel. It turns out they didn't run any new wires for the home theater to get HD. Josh was able to set me up with a new system with HD and all the new stuff was controlled with just one remote. Thanks for a job well done!

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.
      • Projector and bracket: $1,500.
      • 110-inch screen: $600.
