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.

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.

Can you mount a TV without studs?

Yes, you can mount a TV without studs using hollow wall anchors, which are used to hang objects on a wall, according to Digital Trends. However, these have limits. Make sure they can handle the weight of your TV. 

If you’re not comfortable mounting a TV on the wall without studs by yourself, hire a top-rated professional in your area instead.

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.

Quick and smooth installation of TV. I bought a mount for my tv that was not suitable for my apt walls, but Danny provided me with his own mount. My tv was up and running really quickly!

Alex is skilled & does great work for an incredible price! I told him I wanted a full motion wall mount. He picked one up that was very high quality and exactly what I wanted! He did a great job of installing the bracket to the brick wall. We then opened the TV box & discovered the TV was cracked during shipment. He showed me how to mount the TV onto the wall bracket & even brought stronger screws than the wall mount provided. At least, my wall now has a sturdy, full motion wall mount that holds up to a 55 inch TV. Once the broken TV is picked up I'm buying a 55 inch TV. I highly recommend Low Voltage & will be calling Alex again when I need any other A/V help.

Installed a broken tv onto my wall - didn’t test it before mounting it or maybe he broke it?Didn’t plug in any devices - installed on wall so I could not reach the back to plug stuff in. Just confounding.

Dimitri installed a wall mount and new tv on a cement wall over my fireplace. He was knowledgeable, polite, communicated well throughout, gave us some ideas about the positioning of the tv and was very professional and neat. He had clearly done many of these installs…he also came prepared with the cement screws and anchors which did not come with my wall mount..very happy with the service and results…Highly recommend!

Konstantin provided a prompt, efficient and knowledgeable level of service when he installed a wall-mounted big-screen TV in our bedroom. The articulated TV mount that he installed works perfectly, and we are confident that the work is both strong and stable. Highly recommend Konstantine for his expertise and professionalism - five stars!

Kenneth was great! I had two tv's to install and had bought the wrong mount for one - he ended up helping me install my new air conditioner plus the one tv for the same price as the two tv's which was much appreciated. My tv was on a tricky wall so it wasn't an easy job either. Highly recommend!

This was great! Contacted them and got an immediate appointment when I wanted, after business hours, for a super competitive price they bid with no upselling. He came, he installed, it looks great. I have a plaster wall and he was very familiar with mounting on it, which was comforting for sure. Highly recommended for tv mounting. This was a 55" tv.

I hired Martin to perform several mountings for television sets and his skillset level was tremendous. Installing tv mounts isn't easy depending on the wall setting. Martin's level of carpentry skills is extremely competent. Rest assure if you need a high skill leveled professional that knows his trade, this is your man.

Mike was great! Very professional, timely and personable. Was experienced and knew what he was doing. He mounted our tv on a concrete wall, hang a heavy picture on concrete, and installed curtain units. Would definitely use him in the future and highly recommend him.

Danny showed up in less than an hour and had our wall mount and TV installed less than 30 minutes later. This will be my first call next time I need something done in my house. 10/10 recommend Tech Experts!

Jeff is a very nice young man .. And DID A GREAT JOB !!! He hung a 55 OLED tv on an complex multi directional arm i already had ..its not a straightforward installation ..a bit of math and calculating on his part had to be done to figure out where to mount the arm to get the tv centered on the wall when the arm is pushed back against the wall ..the arm moves in any direction and extends 27 inches if wanted ... A plan was talked about and a piece of plywood was affixed to 3 studs by 8 lag screws ..and then all  tvs and and wiring was concealed in the wall

Alex did a great job on my TV wall mount install, sound bar bracket install, and wall plate and wire conceal job. Alex came by himself and has all the tools required. He did solid job making adjustments and was accommodating to my requests. He was also able to troubleshoot a few issues within my previous setup and in the end everything was perfect. His pricing was very fair. I would highly recommend Alex.

Daniel did an excellent job for me on two separate occasions. Not only was his technical capability very good (he knows how to get a TV mount installed no matter how tricky the walls may be), but he also helped me select the right equipment for my specific projects. I highly recommend.

Jonathan was simply amazing! He came to install a new mount as our prior contractor did a terrible job, and our TV fell off. Jonathan patched up the wall as well, and came back the 2nd time because our old TV when it fell the screen became damaged so had to get another TV. He is fantastic, reliable, professional, and workmanship is high quality! Thank you, thank you, thank you Jonathan for your help. We highly recommend him.

I had gotten a new CPU and 32" smart TV in the apartment - the first upgrade in like 10 years! Mel definitely went above and beyond to work around my changeable schedule. He arrived with everything needed to wall-mount this small TV, including a nice cable organizer, showed me how to un-mount the TV if need be. He connected the new CPU to the TV and showed me how to use the remote to have the TV both as a computer screen, and to watch cable TV - which is what I wanted, one screen for 2 purposes. He leveled carefully and attached securely to my plaster wall at the correct height. He assessed my cable box and since it was outdated advised me to get a new box for free from my cable provider, which I have done (even they said OMG its so old!) My installation is smaller than most in his photo gallery, and even so he gave me so much value added for an affordable price, I give him the highest of recommendations!

Konstantine went above and beyond my expectations in helping me assemble my TV/wall mount and open closet. He was extremely efficient in putting together my TV and made sure that the positioning of everything was exactly how I wanted it before installing it. Not only did he do an amazing job at assembling my TV, he also helped me put together some of my IKEA furniture that IKEA failed to assemble even after I had paid for their assembly service. I will 100% be hiring Konstantine again for future assembly tasks.

Everything already mentioned in previous reviews about Nick is true. I hired Nick to install my TV mount, run wires through the wall and hang floating cabinets. He was very professional, knowledgeable and and the finish product looks great. I've already received many compliments. He pays close attention to the details and he takes pride in his work. I would definitely recommend Nick.
