Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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. 

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.

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.

How long does mounting a TV take?

Mounting a TV can take as little as one to three hours. However, the time it takes to mount a TV depends on the size and location of the TV, the complexity of the setup and additional factors. In general, more complex systems will require more time. A typical installation will include installing a TV mount on the wall, floor or ceiling, mounting the TV to it, routing cables so they’re not visible  and testing to make sure the system works.

Reviews for Alexandria tv wall mount installers

Hired Clement to take down my old tv and wall mount off the fireplace wall and put up a new MantelMount and TV. Clement arrived early and did everything we agreed to and he even added the soundbar mount that I purchased last minute to the installation. A consummate professional, he took his time to make sure he did it right and even made changes when I didn't like where the TV height originally was installed at. Couldn't ask for better service and the price he charged couldn't be beat. You get exceptional service and exceptional prices with Clement.

Gil did a great job mounting my 60" LED TV and hiding the wires, as well as installing a duplex outlet behind my thin-mounted 46" LED TV and feeding the wires through the wall into my closet. Great guy, friendly, sociable, etc. Only minor criticism would be cleanup (some drywall dust left around) and efficiency (7.5 hours). Otherwise, he did very good work and I am pleased with the final products.

I hired Jhonathan for 2 jobs. The first was for a TV wall mount install. He took his time, made sure everything was perfectly in place, and hid the wires. It came out excellent. I called him back for a surround sound install, and I'm loving the way it came out. Both jobs look professional, and his rates were lower than other place I contacted. I would absolutely recommend Jhonathan, and I will call him back when I need something else like that done!

I cannot recommend David enough, you would be foolish not to use him for his work. My jobs were more complicated than originally thought, but David provided his most informed opinions, and provided the highest quality of work. He never presumed a thing, was courteous and communicative, and charged far less than stores that provide the same services. He mounted a complicated TV bracket over my fireplace including adding a new electric box into the wall. He made his own modifications to a bracket so I could keep my sound bar that didn’t fit correctly. He also ran power to a new alarm system panel through a 100-year-old wall filled with old debris. He doesn’t have a ton of Thumbtack reviews apparently only because he’s newer to the service, but he’s been wiring and installing homes of all ages for decades (for some very notable and prominent people). I don’t believe I’ve ever had better service - I will hire David again in a heartbeat.
