"All I can say is that we wish we had met Tony years ago. He was excellent! Very knowledgeable about every aspect of home repair and maintenance. As if that wasn't enough, he was dependable, cleaned up after himself, extremely honest, helped us work within a budget that we could manage, didn't waste money in getting us to purchase equipment that he had, oh, did I say honest? (All the items I mentioned we had previous bad experiences with...so you can imagine the relief to find someone with integrity, pride in his work, personable, and very trustworthy.) I cannot rave enough about Tony and his work! Absolutely wonderful!! We are in the midst of putting our house up for sale and he did these things for us: 1. took an old sink vanity out, replaced with a new one (and found the best place to get it in terms of beauty and cost) as well as all plumbing fixtures (after checking that all pipes underneath were in good working order.) This was all after discovering that the original main bathroom sinks we wanted to replace had been originally done with weird specifications and we wouldn't be able to use any standard sized vanity tops...ie it would cost a fortune to try to replace and might lead to needing to replace the top and full furniture under. 2. took off old wallpaper from that bathroom, cleaned the walls thoroughly, caulked, repainted. 3. painted our main kitchen (after he caulked around all the cabinets) 4. replaced old sink fixtures and made sure all was in good order under the sink. 5. replaced various light fixtures inside and outside the house. 6. helped us deal with a front porch roof where first birds, then squirrels then birds again found a home. Initially we thought they'd leave if we made sure small open areas in 4 corners were sealed. They didn't--tony had to take the whole roof off, clean up the mess, replace wiring that had been chewed and replaced a light fixture, installed molding all around to make it look good, caulked every millimeter and then painted the whole thing. 7. power washed my whole house and deck and was careful to use the right power so we wouldn't end up with a lot of paint coming off. I'm moving to Ohio and want this guy to do a road trip over!!! Really I'm serious!!"

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.
