Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I choose the best TV mounting service in San Francisco?

Compare the best TV mounting service professionals in San Francisco by reading customer reviews, ratings and details on each company’s services. If you see a company you like, take the time to also browse through any customer photos. When you start receiving quotes from San Francisco companies, compare them against each other. During your consultation call, ask about how long the installation might take, if you need to provide any materials, if the professional has availability and what the payment process entails. 

How much does it cost to hang a TV in San Francisco?

The best TV wall mount installers in San Francisco have different prices for their services, but you may find some pros who charge as little as $75. Keep in mind that several factors will impact how much you’ll pay, however. For example, is the pro charging a flat rate or hourly rate? What type of wall material will the TV be mounted to? The pro may charge more for surfaces like concrete, brick or plaster, as these often require specialized labor and parts — particularly if you want your cables concealed. Second, what type of mount do you need (wall mount, recessed mount, etc.)? And finally, do you have your own TV mount, or will the pro have to provide one?

Where can I buy a TV wall mount in San Francisco?

San Francisco has plenty of retailers -- electronic stores, hardware stores, etc. -- that offer TV wall mounts for your setup. Larger chain stores tend to have greater inventory, though smaller companies can often provide another level of personalized help. You should also try searching online for TV mounts. To make the search more efficient, contact a TV wall mount installation service in San Francisco. They can offer you some guidance -- or maybe even sell you a TV mount -- and complete the installation process for you.

Where can I buy TV mount screws in San Francisco?

The San Francisco area has a large number of locations to find everything you need for your TV mount, including universal TV mount screws. Try visiting electronics and hardware stores, as well as online stores. Before you buy screws, contact a San Francisco TV wall mount installer to see if they can give you any recommendations or perhaps even sell you the screws you need. They can even save you the time and hassle of installing a TV mount in your home.

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.

How do I hide the wires to my wall-mounted TV?

You can hide wires from a hanging TV on a wall by putting them behind the wall. However, this requires some drilling or buying an in-wall power kit. Alternatively, you can use what’s called a “raceway” — a hollow metal or plastic channel — that runs down your wall and hides your cables from sight. To get the job done right, and avoid risking damage to your wall, hire a professional TV wall mount installer near you.

Ricardo mounted my TV on an extendable wall mount and also hung a heavy mirror on the wall. He showed up on time, prepared and quickly finished the job. He's experience and professional. I have old walls, so he had to drill a second hole in the wall to install the TV, which he patched up without asking. I'll be definitely be calling on Ricardo for jobs in the future - I highly recommend him.

Great work in satisfying what we needed. Especially with the complexities that were discovered (ie. Fire block, frame) in the wall for our tv mount installation. We are pleased.

Sandy did a great job mounting a TV to my wall along with installing a floating shelf. The studs on my wall are steel so he brought a level of expertise necessary to get the job done. Great attitude as well! Would recommend!

The TV mounting installation that was seemingly straightforward turned out to be a challenging task as my house has steel beams inside the walls. Robert found a strong and creative alternative to mounting the TV and did a phenomenal job on the mounting. He is very responsive to emails and a trustworthy handyman. He even came back 30min after the installation was done when he realized he had mistakenly put my tape measure into his toolkit! His pricing was competitive with the other bids I received on thumbtack. Thank you Robert!

Steve installed a complex MantelMount MM340 TV mount for me. He communicated clearly before coming, arrived early, and got the job done handily. It took longer than I think either of us expected, but it's a tricky mount, and in the end looks great on the wall. He wore a mask the entire time and was courteous throughout.

Imed was very at tentative and skilled at mounting my TV. I replaced a 60” with a new LG CX77, and an old Plasma 42” with a new LG CX55. We reused the brackets and Imed helped reinforced the old brackets. He carefully explained every step of the install and was very efficient and professional. I would highly recommend his service to anyone looking to help mount objects to wall. Easily 5+ stars.

The installers came in late and seemed in a lot of rush. I could not communicate directly with the installer because he wasn't comfortable/willing to speak English. But there was another person who helped translate - that and the rush they seemed to be in definitely threw me off. I was misguided on how to center the tv - for an additional cost. Since the mount would end up going on the dry wall and not the stud, I declined which turned out to be great because the mount itself had a way to adjust the tv horizontally. Which I did after they left. Finally, the TV was installed 5 inches higher than I had request. But then they ran away as soon as it was done before I could get a chance to sit and inspect and all. I am not happy. I will just fix it by myself now I guess and will be careful hiring someone on ThubTack.

Jeff arrived here promptly and all my interaction with him were professional. He came well prepared for the job and completed my TV mounting with hidden cables in under 2 hours. He even went the extra bit to spackle around the wire openings he installed in the walls. The job was a little messy which wasn't a big deal but it would have been nice if Jeff could have handled more of the clean-up as part of the work. If you need a TV or media equipment installed Jeff's your guy to make it look great!

Had a tv installed on a shared wall. Was concerned about issues with what was behind the wall, gas lines, water lines etc. Christopher gave a competitive bid for the work. Showed up on time and completed the work efficiently. This is his field of work, he's not moonlighting as a waiter or a something else, this is his profession. You can trust him to complete the work to your satisfaction. A lot of variables exist, but hiring a professional helps eliminate surprises. Have the mount ready, have your wires ready and you will be a happy customer.

Thudium really went the extra mile. It was unclear whether the cords could be fitted through the wall, but he didn’t give up and figured out a solution. I really wanted a clean look and was so appreciative that he was determined to deliver. The TV mount was also pretty tricky but he’s very experienced and was able to troubleshoot it. Lastly, he took the power strip and installed it onto our wall so the power cords could be cleanly plugged away. I like to think I play keen attention to detail; so the little things really matter to me. I’m happy to say he is equally particular about the details which is really a sign that he knows the craft well. He was also very reasonably priced.
