Joe was absolutely fantastic. He showed up on time, outfitted with all he would need to mount my two TVs. When he arrived he had me show him both TVs and both walls. Immediately he informed me that the mounts I bought would work from one location in the house but not for the other. He diligently went to work mounting the first TV for which he used the mount that I had purchased off amazon. The mounting was quick and it was perfectly placed. As for the second TV, Joe was so great that he drove from South Boston back to his home in Beacon Hill to get another mount that would work for that space. Joe returned with the new mount, installed it quickly, and positioned it perfectly. Even with having to drive 30 minutes round trip in the middle of the job, Joe still charged me the agreed upon rate. In an age where most people are looking to only do the minimum and then charge the maximum Joe really impressed me. Joe knows his stuff, and definitely the best choice in Boston if you are looking for home theater or TV mounting expertise. Thank you Joe you reinstilled my faith in people, and using sites such as Thumbtack!

AMAZING! I want to extend a big thank you to First in Service for the beautiful job that they completed on our ( extremely large, extremely complicated, two-story, kitchen, playhouse, tube slide ) wooden swing set. Ralph and his team were on time and ready to complete the project as promised. Every piece of the playset was placed together with care and thoughtfulness. The guys worked through the day and did not stop until it the playset was complete. Ralph gave an excellent price and was very helpful with all our questions. I will recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you again for an AMAZING job well done.

I would like to recommend Joe Bisson for the electrical work he did for me! My project ended up being more extensive that I first proposed to Joe and he was able to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I was satisfied with his work. He was on time, extremely dedicated and hard working. I had a lot going on with different trades working on my new home, and Joe was reliable, super pleasant, super professional and went out of his way to get things done. There were some scheduling issues on my part that inconvenienced Joe, however, he never complained and maintained a positive, can do, flexible attitude. Thank you Joe for all of your hard work - I truly appreciate it!

Jason did a phenomenal job at about 1/3 the cost of other quotes I received. He installed electrical outlets above two wood burning fireplaces, mounted a 55 TV above one of them, including threading the A/V wires horizontally across the wall and across studs, and added a few other new outlets throughout the house. I had a bunch of home theatre companies come out and tell me how complicated my TV mounting job was going to be and gave me absurd timetables and quotes. Jason came by and completed all the jobs perfectly in 6 hours. Also, unlike other electricians that I’ve had, Jason didn’t make a mess and spackled all the holes in the wall. I highly recommend Jason and will definitely hire him again for my next job (recessed and exterior lighting).

I’m so glad this experience worked out for me! I was a bit apprehensive about finding someone through an app but I’m so glad I did! “The Man that Can” helped me get my to-do list done in my new home! I keep calling him back because he is so handy and knowledgeable and is getting stuff done that my husband doesn’t have time to do or know how to do! He is reliable, reasonable, and the quality of his is work is great. I highly recommend him!

Ken was just incredible. I needed an inspection on a historic home immediately. He came out the same day and spent hours waking through the home and looking at all corners of the property inside and out. His electrician experience and education was invaluable and an added bonus. I really appreciated his synopsis at the end to help me understand the condition of the home and give me a sense of the scale and scope of the areas needing improvement. His knowledge of old homes is phenomenal. I will definitely be calling on him again and recommending to any friends or colleagues. Thanks for everything Ken!!!

RJ Development delivered impeccable service. I admit I was hesitant based on a negative review previously written, however the way Rich followed up with me, and answered all my questions really put me at ease. He took the time to come to our home to clarify what was needed. He kept to the pricing. This is a very nice contractor and very personable. I would recommend him without hesitation!

I needed help running some wires in wall, mounting TV's, and setting up all my home theater things. VERY responsive, and the nicest, most professional compared to other companies I've used on here. Pricing wise, they come lower than everyone else too by far! Will hire them again for any future projects for sure, thanks again guys!!

Hands-down he was the nicest person I’ve ever had the pleasure of planning a project with! Truly a professional in every aspect, on top of a work ethic not many people possess. He was extremely neat and beyond helpful (he also hung my window treatment rods, and didn’t want to charge me a dime extra!) Jim not only made my bedroom look incredible, (I added a picture next to the windowsill so you could see how sharp his painting was without using tape), but knowing I had a baby in the house he removed his shoes when I didn’t even ask him to! I will without a doubt be calling him for future endeavors in our home.

Found this company here. I have NEVER had a trade show up on time besides them. They are completely professional. They were at home For a very long time and made sure they got the electricity back on before they even had lunch (8 hours). They both needed to use the bathroom and I was ask “ may I use the restroom”. They cleaned up the yard and basement after themselves and left no mess. Asked all my questions. Explained every step of the processes and even put on shoe protectors when in my home. Adam is my main electrican now.

I needed two ceiling fans installed within a very short period of time. Akil answered right away, was extremely courteous and professional. He was able to adjust his schedule to get to my project the same day and was more than fair on his pricing. We agreed on a price beforehand, he stuck to it upon completion- absolutely no surprises. He treated my home as if it were his own making sure the mess from the job (dust, wire clippings & debris) was cleaned up before leaving; even cleaning as he went. Bottom line is, as a homeowner, I’ve now found a dependable handyman I know I can trust and that is an invaluable commodity! You won’t be disappointed hiring him for your home projects. Thanks again Akil; my family noticed the new fans immediately at the party and were all very impressed!

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.

      • 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
