Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How high should you install a TV mount on a wall?

The actual height you mount your TV will depend on the layout of your room. If you’re mounting it above a fireplace or in an alcove, the height of these structures will determine the mounting height of your TV. However, Bob Villa recommends positioning your TV 42 inches on-center in conventional rooms with standard seated viewing.

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 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 you mount a TV in drywall?

Yes, it’s possible to mount a TV on drywall. To make sure the job is done right and you don’t end up damaging your wall or injuring yourself, consider contacting one of the best TV wall mount installers near you. When contacting professionals, make sure you tell them you wish to mount a TV in drywall. 

What type of TV mount do I need?

There are several types of TV mounts, including fixed mounts, tilting mounts and full-motion mounts. A fixed mount is sturdy but offers no movement, and a tilting mount tilts vertically. A full-motion TV mount swivels and tilts for the maximum number of possible viewing options. You can also mount your TV from above with a ceiling TV mount. Whichever TV mount you choose, ensure it can support your TV’s weight and size. If you need help choosing and installing a TV mount, contact a TV wall mount installer near you.

Are TV wall mounts universal?

TV wall mounts are generally universal. This is because most TV wall mounts comply with standards set forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Thanks to this set of standards, any mount you buy is likely to be a universal TV wall mount. However, exceptions do apply. Certain brands may not follow VESA standards, and though this is rare, it’s worth checking to make sure you’re buying a VESA-compatible universal TV mount.

Can you mount any TV?

Many TVs can be mounted with standard equipment. However, you need to cover a few details before mounting a TV. Know the size and weight of your TV before you purchase a mount. Additionally, make sure your TV follows the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) standards by looking for the VESA logo followed by a number. Match this number to the VESA-compatible mount to ensure compatibility. If you’re unsure if your TV can be mounted, contact the best professional TV mounting services in your area to see if they can offer guidance and help you with the installation.

Can a TV mounting service also install a home theater system?

Yes, a TV mounting service is often able to install a home theater system as well. Companies and technicians who offer flat-screen TV wall mount installation service may offer package deals on installing surround sound and other parts of a home theater installation. To find the best TV mounting service near you that can install a surround sound system in your home, compare companies side by side. Choose a service that’s within your budget and book an appointment instantly.

Reviews for San Diego tv wall mount installers
Thumbtack Customer
Adam showed up on time and was efficient with my TV mount. He was super knowledgeable about wall mounts and installation. He was very good about putting things back to the way they were -- external speakers, cables, etc. He was able to take my old flat screen television away, which was a huge help. Overall, the job took roughly 30 minutes to remove the old TV and mount and place the new mount and new TV to the wall. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing this service in the future.

Great experience. Easy to set up the appointment at my convenience. He was courteous and mounted the tv where I wanted it on the wall. He checked out the TV and DVD player to make sure everything was working correctly after installation. Price was great which I appreciated for this simple 20 minute wall mount. All other quotes from various vendors were ridiculous. I definitely recommend Adam and imighthaveit.biz..

Adam did a terrific job - he mounted my new tv on the wall and installed the one that had been on the wall before in another room. He was so fast, friendly and efficient. And so reasonable. I'm so glad I didn't wait for my son-in-law!

Adam called ahead to let us know he could do the install early if we were available. He also brought in two different mounts as requested because we weren't sure which we wanted. He was very fast and professional. It is clear he focuses on tv mounts and he is good at it. One small gripe is some dry wall shavings were left on the mount but this was minor. I searched all over and no one can beat his prices for a mount /install combo.

Leo came to mount my TV on a wall in our living room. He was fast, explained the process to me and was very polite. He is an electrician, so he does electrical work too (recessed lighting, installing ceiling fans, etc). I will be calling him to install recessed lighting in my home as well.

If you are looking for someone to mount your TV, stop reading reviews and hire this guy! Robert did an amazing job (very quickly I might add) and has the expertise and tools to do more challenging installations such as those involving steel studs, in-wall steel plates, etc. I was super impressed and will definitely hire Robert again for my next installation!

I had Mo come install an outside tv mount for a tv on my patio. I also had two small additional features to add to wall including surge protector behind the tv and a holder for the Dvr. Mo took great effort to find the stud and be sure I was pleased with all. It took an hour and he didn’t even mind my puppy hanging around his legs 😀 Overall for the price I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you Mo!

I'd initially just wanted an estimate and professional evaluation of what would be the best option for mounting a new TV and switching some older ones around. (I wasn't sure whether I should get a TV stand or mount the new TV on the wall.) Moe showed up on time, gave me some options and even had sufficient equipment with him to accomplish the work on the spot. He did a great job on mounting the televisions along with a sound bar and made recommendations on appropriate positioning based on his professional expertise. He even installed an outlet to help conceal messy cords on our new TV. He was very courteous in that he removed his shoes on entering the house and wore a protective mask at all times to avoid spreading germs. I would highly recommend him to friends and family for any information technology and TV/entertainment system work.

The first time he came to my house is to help me to just install the wall mount because the TV was broken. Then he left and promised to come back at US20 to mount the TV. Now my TV is ready and I figured out the TV mount he installed is not 100% level. I called him and texted him so many times and he either said he is out of town or not available. Finally he said my house is too far from his house so he didn't want to come and refer me to another contractor. He didn't keep his promise and take the responsibility for fixing the wall mount for me. Now I have to pay another contractor to do that for me. It's an hassel for me! I have even told him I will pay him double if he figured out that is not his responsibility. Then he stopped replying my text. I don't know what else I should say but I have to say I am unlucky to meet such a dishonest and irresponsible technician. He even lied to me that he only charge me half price last time because the TV was broken. He charged me US40 which is a full price! I checked his profile again and the service should include 1 year labour warranty but then he just ignore my request for coming to fix the wall mount. Please avoid dealing business with this technician as he will use a lot of excuse to not to come back to fix what he has done wrong. Wasted of time and money!

I had a 55" TV that needed to be installed on the wall and I really wanted to get the wires through the wall so they wouldn't be seen. My handyman didn't want to do it, so I decided to call an expert! Jon knew exactly what to do and how to do it. He had extra mounts to fit all TVs, so I was able to switch mine out for something better suited. He is very passionate about his work and works tirelessly to make sure you have exactly what you need/want. I will recommend him to my friends and family if they need their TV or audio system upgraded or installed.

I hired Aaron and his colleague to install our TV wall mount. From the communication perspective Aaron seemed very responsive and appeared very professional in his approach. They are also priced very well compared to others which liked a lot. He also arrived before time for appointment which I appreciated. He finished the job in 20mins. Even though they did a mis-drill for one of the hole which they had to do another hole on my wall I kind of ignored it thinking it can happen to anyone. They thought I didn't see it but I did. Without much checking I was still happy that they finished a long pending job for me I didn't complain about the extra hole on my wall and tipped them generously too in my opinion. Right after they left I noticed the tv was not aligned and contacted Aaron right away. As usual he responded right away to come back as soon he can to fix the problem. I waited entire day and later at 5pm I contacted again to see where he was and he apologized for the late response and told me that he was stuck at job and will be able to come next morning only. It would have been helpful if he had told me that his team won't be able to come earlier, I had plans for the day that I had to cancel. He came next morning and fixed the alignment issue. I asked Aaron what was the problem and he told me that screws got loosed some how. I trusted him and checked the alignment issue was solved. But later same day I noticed that they actually put a piece of paper on the mount to make it align. So it was not the screw but rather they didn't do the drills properly. I would have appreciated if Aaron would have told me the truth but he didn't and may be thought I will never figure it out. :) Not sure about if this kind of hacks are expected in every wall mount but when I hired Pacific team instead of doing myself I expected 100% satisfaction. It didn't happen so I am giving them average review here. I might have given even lower rating but I didn't because either way at least I have my tv mounted and its aligned (with the hack).

It took almost a month for Moe complete my project! But through no fault on his own. Moe installed our new TV on an existing wall mount above a fireplace. We had mentioned to him about hiding away all the devices and wires and he said he could do it but would have to return another time. I purchased a remote he suggested and he returned a week later to move the devices and program everything. He still needed to come back and hide the wires and mount the sound bar. Then the coronavirus situation took over the whole world and a few weeks later I finally contacted Moe to come back and finish up. This man invested a lot of time and effort to get everything the way we wanted and we are 110% satisfied! I wouldn't hesitate working with Moe if we are in need of his services again. He gave us his price upfront and never tried to add extra "charges." We are really impressed with Moe's work ethic and dedication seeing this project through.
