"I cannot recommend Mario enough! I found him on Thumbtack while I was in Georgia preparing to purchase our house in Iowa. He was quick to reply and easy to work with. Through emails and one phone call, we worked out the details and Mario followed through with the projects. We had Mario paint the interior of our house - INCLUDING painting our wood built-in cabinets and shelves white - and painting our 12 foot ceilings. They are beautiful and are not chipping at all on the polyurethaned wooden cabinets (which means he sanded and prepared perfectly!). Mario showed up when he said he would, and he always cleaned up after himself. I have not found any paint on our floors or carpets - he is very thorough and organized. We will call him whenever we need anything done in our home. My husband already has other projects for him! On top of being an amazing worker, I have to mention what an absolutely WONDERFUL man Mario is. He is enthusiastic and determined to please his customers. He is truly NICE and respectful. You will be very pleased! And - lastly - I would be failing miserably in this review if I didn't mention that Mario is an artist. While he was finishing up a job for us this morning, Mario and I discussed art. He ended up bringing in his portfolio. I am an art teacher and artist myself... I was blown away by his talent. His style is gorgeous! Ask to see his personal portfolio if you get a chance! His work is amazing! (thank you, thank you, thank you, Mario, for helping us out so much! This morning while finishing up some exterior painting"

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.
