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. 

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.

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.

What tools do you need to mount a TV on the wall?

You need several tools to mount a TV on a wall. Often, the tools that are needed include safety goggles, a stud finder or hollow wall anchors, a level, a power drill and bits of various sizes. You’ll also likely need a socket wrench and screwdriver set. If you don’t have these tools, hire a TV wall mount installer near you who can do the job and bring their own tools.

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.

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.

Reviews for Annapolis tv wall mount installers

Cruz installers was wonderful. Very pleasant personality and professional appearance. Had a disappointment when I pulled the new TV out of the box and the screen was cracked! But he put the mount on the wall anyway and showed how to put the tv on. He then helped me load it to return to Sams Club!

Tom, the technician, installed a TV wall mount in our living room. He was professional and clearly knew what he was talking about concerning setting up our TV and the DVR player. He made sure both were functioning properly before leaving. Our drywall has an unusual double thickness which was difficult for Tom to cut through but despite that problem he stuck with the original estimate that included a flexible wall mount. Very happy with the service and would use this company again. I highly recommend it.

I sent my request out, and received a response back within a hour or so. Sara mentioned availability for the next few days and as I have family coming from out of town, I wanted everything fixed before their arrival... so I inquired about evening hours, that night (to confirm, 5 hours later). She informed me that it was possible with a small (reasonable) travel fee, and got me on the schedule. Nic arrived at 7pm to relocate my too-high-mounted TV, as well as relocate my floating shelf that I installed myself, under the impression I would install two, but didn't have enough room... so it all needed to be shifted down. This wall is a firewall, it's concrete... so it was already going to be a pain in the ass. The shelf gave him a hard time, and the TV gave him a hard time. Apparently the company who originally mounted it didn't do it properly, and used wood screws instead of concrete... also installed the mount upside down... so Nic fixed all that. All in all, the poor man was at my house until 10pm... but had the patience of a saint, because I would've thrown everything out the window about 45 minutes in. Thanks guys! I'd highly recommend.

Giving the owner, Rob, 5 stars for his exceptional service. This company was not the cheapest, but the main reason I went with it is because it sent a follow-up email to see if I still needed the service after I received all the quotes. None of the other companies did so. During our initial conversation over the phone, which I initiated, Rob was patient in answering all my questions. He also demonstrated his knowledge about TV mounting (of which I had very little). The scheduled installation went smoothly. It took approximately 3.5 hours for two TVs to be mounted with internal wiring kits for both (wires hidden within the wall). Rob and his colleague were respectful of our house and cleaned up after themselves. We got our installation done on a Saturday, and Rob called on Monday to check up on everything. Even though this was not the cheapest company, I still believe the price was reasonable and worth it for the quality of customer and mounting services. Overall, very pleased with the whole experience from start to finish and would recommend this company to all.
