What's in this cost guide?

A few factors can affect the cost of professional TV mounting services. Flat-screen TVs of any size can be mounted onto a range of surfaces, including stone, plaster, brick, wood, drywall and concrete. A local professional will be able to tell you if you can use existing electrical outlets in the room, or if you need to consider having a new outlet installed.

Hourly vs. flat rates

Handymen are more likely to offer hourly rates for the service, while TV-mounting companies typically have set fees based on the type of mount and the complexity of the wiring.

Here are some examples of hourly versus set rates:

  • Handyman business Creative Magnificence charges $70–$90 for the first hour, then $9–$11 for every 15 minutes thereafter.
  • Handyman business 123 Assembly charges $75 per hour or an agreed-upon flat rate for services.
  • Handyman Jared Cohee charges $109 per hour.
  • Josh’s TV Mounting charges a flat rate of $80–$150, depending on the specifics of the job.

What would a standard TV wall mount cost to install?

In many cases, a standard TV mount service means that the client provides the mounting apparatus, and the professional just does the labor of attaching the TV to the wall. Prices generally go up if the pro installs the audio/visual (A/V) wires and connects the TV.

Here’s how San Diego TV Installation handles pricing:

  • Basic mount with the A/V wires showing (not installed behind the wall): $50
  • Basic mount with A/V wires installed in the wall: $69

Does a tilting TV mount or articulating bracket affect cost?

Tilting TV mounts and articulating brackets allow for movement of the TV screen after it has been mounted to the wall. These mounting brackets require additional time, effort and occasionally materials to install and can therefore increase the cost.

San Diego TV Installation charges the following for different types of brackets:

  • Tilting bracket and mounting service package: $70
  • Articulating bracket and mounting service package: $110

Does TV size matter?

TV size, as well as TV weight, can affect the overall cost of mounting. However, many companies charge an hourly or flat rate per TV as opposed to basing their fees on TV size. It's a great question to ask when you first contact a pro, just to check how they handle their pricing.

Will my wall type affect the project cost?

The type of walls in your house can affect the cost of any work done. Brick, concrete and stone all present more labor—especially if you want in-wall A/V cord installation. Your living room wall may be easy or difficult for TV wall mount installation, so getting some professional advice is worthwhile. In general, harder wall surfaces cost more for TV mounting services than a softer surface such as drywall. However, no matter the wall type or associated cost, all mounted TVs can be very heavy. Even if you usually like to handle small projects yourself, this is a job for the pros.

Home theater and surround sound systems.

Homeowners with home theaters, surround sound systems, or extensive media components who need their A/V cords reattached and all the components wired together may pay a higher fee. These kinds of jobs may require a more technically skilled A/V expert. We'd recommend chatting with a local service provider. They may even offer a free estimate for the work you have planned.
