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. 

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.

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.

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.

Ben installed a TV wall mount for us. We were in a crunch and contacted him last minute. He went above and beyond to help us.

John mounted a tv on the wall for me and helped me install an under-cabinet paper towel dispenser. There were a number of unexpected technical and mechanical issues involved in mounting the tv, and John was determined to get it right. The tv took way longer than it would have to mount a normal tv, and he did not charge me extra for this. I will definitely contact him in the future for things like this!

Sergio mounted 4 tv mounts at my new construction house. Sergio ran into a couple of obstacles in setting them up due to the construction of the house but he was able to find solutions and install all the tv mounts perfects , hiding all the wires in the wall. During the installation he let me know exactly what he was doing and kept me aware of everything, he was professional and very friendly . Highly recommend for quality of work and value

Ben with Superior Electric was extremely professional, courteous, meticulous, and above all, professional. I have had Ben help me with two TV mounts and a chandelier installation. The TV mount in the living room was quite a project. I had a large hole in the wall to accommodate the older larger TV's. Ben was able to fashion out of wood and plaster a piece that perfectly fit into the space to mount a flat screen TV. He plastered the seams and had the proper equipment to install the TV's and chandelier. He was careful to hide excess wires, and was extremely detailed oriented like he was doing the work in his own home. He made multiple trips to ensure the plaster was dry, to sand it, and ensure my satisfaction. If you want a professional to get the job done right and at a fair cost, call Ben.

I would strongly recommend him for tv wall mounting installs as well as other handyman jobs. He is truly a jack of all trades & has a very positive, pleasant personality. Great guy to work with along with great prices...

This was hands down my best Thumbtack experience so far. Chris was a winner from the start good communication, friendly, fair and very skilled. I’m fairly certain he has the ability to figure out almost anything. He easily mounted my tv and soundbar along with running the cables behind the wall. He even had time to put up a ceiling fan I've been meaning to install. Chris is my go to guy from now on!
