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.

Reviews for San Antonio tv wall mount installers
Thumbtack Customer
JD was great! When I called for TV mount installation, he responded immediately, and was able to come the next day. I gave him the task of installing a mount that he hadn't yet seen before, but he took it in stride, and did a wonderful job! My TV is level above the fireplace mantle, and you can't see any cords. I would definitely recommend JD to anyone who needs TV wall mounting, or any other "Smarthome" services!"

Giving 5 stars in today's reviews is rare. Steven and Bryan came to my home to install a tv mount for a 65 inch tv. These guys were awesome!!! Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and go above and beyond. In the end, they installed the mount after adding two plug outlets and hiding all wires and cables in the wall... It was one AWESOME turn out. Then on top of all that, they also installed my floating shelf under the tv. These guys are truly a 5 Star company. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Will be rehiring them for future projects. Thanks again guys!

The techs were knowledgeable of how to mount the TV on the wall with existing brackets on my wall. They were able to make the bracket installation work with missing a screw on the bracket. They provided a screw needed to secure the bracket in place. I appreciated the techs making it work!!!! Thank you for your service!!

This company was very prompt in contacting me and keeping me informed about the services that we were needing installing a TV wall mount. The time of arrival was within the window that the company had quoted. I was very happy about that. Upon arrival the technician was very cordial wore a facemask and was very respectful. And installing the television the technician was very thoughtful and considerate about the location and took all avenues possible to help with the installation. I am very happy with the work that this technician did. If you are considering having a TV mount installed I would highly recommend this company.

My husband and I got our flat screen TV mounted above our fire place. JD Smarthome did an excellent job!!! They were able to give us an estimated cost before coming out (we text pictures of TV and area where it would be mounted). Also they were professional and on time. Our TV looks very nice mounted above the fire place and we feel secure knowing will not fall off the wall because it was professionally installed. I have not received such services before, so I was surprised at the high cost of parts and labor. Overall though, we are greatly satisfied with the service provided.

MB Tech Group provided above expected results for my small home gym TV mounting application. Wanted to reserve as much floor space as possible with an unimpeded view of the TV, we chose a high mount option and the work performed highly satisfied. Not only did we receive mounting in the desired location, the mount itself was a top of the line articulating swing arm mount that allowed viewing in all areas of the gym A 120V outlet was a bit tricky, but easily installed by our pro allowing for a clean, builder installed outlet and mount for our home gym that will be beneficial to us for years to come (120V is completely behind wall - black cord in pic is Bluetooth speaker power cord I added). I give 10/10 but would give 20 if I could. Would definitely recommend and hire again for future projects. Fully satisified!

I could not be happier with the work that M&B Technology group did for me today. They wall mounted a 65" Samsung Frame TV (with the request to hide the cord within the wall) and everything was absolutely flawless. The guy who showed up was so friendly and I appreciated his enthusiasm while getting the job done. He was able to install it in about an hour without any problems. Communication in setting up the appointment was excellent and the biggest thing I appreciated was the very fair pricing. I am extremely happy that I chose to go with this company and I fully intend on using them for any of my future electronic needs!

So let me tell you about Patrick. First he was ten minutes early for his appointment. Punctuality speaks volumes for me. He greeted me kindness and immediately started working. He practiced social distancing protocols while performing his work and I love the results. As a single woman, we have trust the right person in our home. He quoted his hourly rate ahead of time and he did not try to nickel and dime me. Work performed - He wall mounted a 58inch TV, completed my window drapery install and placed three pictures on my wall. I will definitely continue to utilize his services in the future and I highly recommend him for your home improvement projects.

He was a great handyman. Very professional. Gave me a business card and let me know he did other services as well. He was on time and got straight to work. My only thing is that I feel my tv is mounted a bit too high up on the wall. I did mention it during installation, but they assured me it was fine and so I figured the experts know better than me. I still feel it’s too high. Throws the feng shui of the room off a little. Other than that no complaints. Would definitely recommend and use them again.
