We are in the midst of renovations and had Luiz and his team move furniture from upstairs to a storage pod in our driveway and also to the garage. They carefully wrapped the furniture and also padded the newly painted banisters to protect them from damage while moving several large, heavy items downstairs. They also carefully packed the pod and wrapped and rearranged items in the garage to create more storage room. They also helped remove blinds from the upstairs windows, took down to large wall mirrors from the bathrooms, medicine cabinets and vanity light fixtures to help prepare for painting. The crew was very courteous and friendly and worked very hard. The total job took about 5 hours. We have already arranged for Luis and crew to come back the following weekend for a 2 hour job and will book them again to move furniture again into the home after renovations.

Tom built my 12 X 10 Cedar Pergola from SAM's club. Tom told me he was going to be at my home at 1100.He arrived at 1055. That's when I knew I picked the right guy. Tom is a professional and very friendly. He is open to communication and suggestions. His price for the project was the most affordable for me. My family is enjoying our Pergola, Thanks Tom. I would hire Tom again for any future projects.

Don was very professional and punctual. He has a passion for his work which leads to him being curious enough to figure out and diagnose odd electrical issues. I had one light that wouldn't turn on intermittently for months in the bathroom of a 1920s home. He asked me a question about the weather when I noticed it wouldn't turn on. He came over and immediately figured it out. It ended up being some old timey thing on the outside of the house that was causing it. Case closed. I will definitely use Don in the future!

Kerry was on time, professional (and great with a loitering 3-year old!) and built a perfect modern outdoor playhouse. the job took 6 hours (would've taken me days). I'd hire Kerry for anything around the house! Well done, Kerry!

Jose and his team took a back room down for me at my house. He quoted me a price, and was true to his word. His team showed up on time. They were professional, worked hard, and actually completed the job ahead of time! Jose had estimated it would take a couple of days for the work. He was able to complete the job in one day. I cannot state how important it is to hire people who are honest and honorable for work you do on your home. There are alot of dishonorables out there....Jose is one of the good guys. His team cleaned up before they left - i think my yard was actually cleaner than when they arrived. I will use Jose and his team again for other construction projects in my home!!

I was lucky to have found Andrew on Thumbtack. He stopped by for an estimate, helped me find a way to best fit the issue we had, and was very competitive in pricing. He even brought the receipt for the items he had to purchase instead of up charging, which is very honest. I will definitely be using his services in the future for our other restaurant locations and even for our home. Thanks, Andrew!

Peter was amazing to work with! He explained our options for each TV and future home theater solutions and is very knowledgeable. He is extremely responsive prior to the appointment making sure he understands what is at the site so he is prepared for anything when he arrives. My movers lost the power cord for a couple of our TVs and Peter was able to help us out by having the ones we needed on hand! He also worked with the Time Warner technician to insure all TVs were up and running and fo future ones to be ready for full home surround sound. His team pays attention to detail and respects your home even sweeping up after! A great find!!!

We hired Jaime to demo our backyard which had a concrete patio and pavers, remove a tree, and install stamped concrete. He did an excellent job! We are very satisfied with his work; it turned out much better than we could have ever imagined! Jaime worked hard and his price was very reasonable. We will definitely consider using him again in the future for our home projects. Thanks again, Jaime!!!

Jose from JP Custom Home is a total pro. Courteous, punctual, and a great value. I scraped a popcorn ceiling in one of our bedrooms; Jose patched, taped, sanded, textured, painted, ran electric for and installed a ceiling fan/light. Amazing work. Will definitely use this great little company again!

I would highly recommend Michael for any of your TV or home theater needs. He was able to install one of those tricky Mantlemounts quickly, and without the help of another person. I was missing a wire that needed to be concealed and Michael went through, step by step on how to do it by myself. He even offered to come back, free of charge, to install it if I couldn’t. He worked quickly, but took the time to make sure everything was working properly and explained everything to me when I had questions.

Javier painted my walls and they look great! He is very nice and professional and offered me a great price. He was also able to fix my kitchen sink that same day.

Had these guys come and install a wireless stereo/home theater system in my constructed-in-1920 home. They did a great job and made it easy for a non-tech savvy guy like me to keep it all running right. Would highly recommend them for their great communication and customer service.

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.

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.
      • Surround amp: $500.
      • 5-inch ceiling speakers and sub: $1,400.
      • Remote control system: $400.
      • Eight zones of speakers and volume controls: $2,800 ($350 each)
      • Labor cost: $3,000. Includes prewiring for 5-inch ceiling speakers, one subwoofer, one 20-inch to 50-inch HDMI, Cat. 6 control wire to projector, 1.5-inch tube for future wire changes, and wiring for two to eight additional audio zones throughout the home. All equipment (audio boxes, amps, cable box, etc.) is concealed. The audio zones are controllable by iOS devices from anywhere in the home.

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.
