Good Bye Angies List Ollie and his partner were super heroes. I had 2 rooms of over size and heavy and awkward furniture to store in the garage while the carpeting in my home was getting replaced. They arrived at the promised time, keeping in touch all the while-I only found them on thumbtack late last night. They worked so hard and so quickly i was amazed. What a happy surprise. I hope they will come back when the carpet is finished to help me put all the stuff back!

I wasn't home however my dad said he would hire Andy in a heartbeat. I posted my request on Sunday night and Andy was one of my first three responses. He came the next day to replace 4 switches which were originally dead. He knew right away that I had the wrong switches. He was done in about an hour and half. The big plus was that he got a switch to work for the first time since I have lived in the house (2004). Thank you do much.

I would absolutely recommend Jack for all your home theater mounting needs. Not only did he stop in a few days prior to see what was already in place without any extra fee, but he also provided a great recommendation for a mount that he was able to put up fairly quickly and painlessly. Jack was always very responsive with messages, both through Thumbtack and text, personable, and he took payment via Venmo, which I appreciated since I rarely have cash on me.

Brady replaced a non-functional attic fan in my parents' home. He was there on time and with all of the parts necessary for the installation. He also replaced a couple of switches and answered a couple of questions on the breaker panel. I was very satisfied with every aspect of the job and would recommend him to everyone.

Mathias was very responsive to my requests and arrived on time (early). He got straight to work and was very thorough and thoughtful in his work. He installed wall sconces on my brick wall, hung a couple of challenging curtain rods and answered numerous questions I had regarding electrical work. I have a couple of other items that need attention so I'll certainly be seeing him soon. Very professional and detailed. He is definitely my new handyman! I highly recommend Mathias for any home project.

Harrison did a great job setting up my home theater. He was very responsive and provided good recommendations as i had already had my surround sound wired , but required moving some of my speakers to accommodate my 110 inch screen. I was very happy with how things turned out. I would recommend him for sure.

James helped me mount my TV and worked tirelessly to help me hook up a home audio system that was a complete pain to get going. He kept coming and spent hours and hours of his time way above the call of duty. It is comforting to know that you can count on someone to keep going until the job is done right. Now my home theater is up and going and the sound is gorgeous. Its all thanks to you James!

Ivaylo was very professional and worked hard to create a solution that fit our budget. Specifically we moved into a new home that had been previously wired for cable and sound in a customary way that was highly outdated and didn't function with modern equipment (e.g. comcast xfinity). Ivaylo presented us with different options to bring the house up-to-date, and disclosed the pricing for each. After discussing the options with him and choosing one, he worked hard to execute and deliver exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend him for any job (whether simple or complicated) that involves home technology (a/v, cable, home theater systems, etc.)

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.
      • 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.
