Considerations

Now that TVs are relatively thin and lightweight, you can decide between leaving it on your entertainment centre or mounting it on the wall. A wall mount can give your room a nice, clean look.

Here are a few things to think about before setting out to find a TV wall mounting service

Placement of TV

Take some time and look around your TV room. You'll need to know where you'd like to place your TV before you have someone come in to mount it.

Most of the time, it will be a regular wall mount. These are the most common types of installations. However, sometimes a recessed wall mount is also a good option!

If you have a fireplace, you may wish to mount the TV on the wall above the mantle. TVs look great above the fireplace and create a gorgeous feature wall for any room. If you do choose to mount your TV above a fireplace there may be an extra cost as this is a speciality installation.

Type of Wall and TV Mount

Once you have a spot in mind for the wall mount, take a look at what the wall is made of. The type of material can affect how much the installation will cost.

It can be more difficult to secure the TV to walls that are made of certain materials like plaster, brick, concrete, or stone. Also be sure that if you're installing a TV after a recent painting project that you've given the paint plenty of time to not only dry to the touch but complete set as well.

Then, depending on the type of wall, your installer may need special tools or fasteners for the job. These types of installations may also take longer as well.

In addition to the wall, you also need to pay attention to the type of TV mount. You will need to choose a type of TV mount that will fit in your space. A flat mount will put your TV parallel to the wall. This works when the TV is mounted at viewing height. Tilt, swivel, and articulating mounts offer adjustable viewing options if you plan to mount your TV higher up.

Cables and Other Devices

Look at your entire TV system and make sure to include any other devices you will need to hook up when you submit your request. Cable and satellite boxes, gaming consoles, or DVD and Blu-ray players will need to be re-connected after mounting. By making a list and then organising which devices you will need to hook up you will save both time and money by ensuring the efficiency of the process.

Remember that if you mount your TV up on the wall, the cables you currently use to connect your devices may no longer reach. If you need to purchase new cables be sure to account for this in your budget.

If you plan to have your cables concealed in the installation, make sure to let your tv mounter know. There can be an added cost for this service.

Sound System

You may also have a sound system to install alongside your other devices. There are a few different types of sound systems to consider. Sound bars can upgrade your TV’s sound at a lower cost. They take up a small amount of space and integrate well with wall mounted TVs.

Stereo sound can increase the amount of volume and improve the quality of sound. A surround sound system offers a fully immersive sound experience but can get rather pricey.

However, both of these options will also take up more room.

Time

After you've determined where you'd like to like to hang your TV, it won't take too long to mount it properly. Make sure you have the necessary equipment in place before you start the job.

It usually takes about one to one and a half hours to complete the job. This includes the time it will take to mount it securely on the wall and hang the TV on the wall bracket or stand.

Any cables or electrical cords will also need to be properly installed before you can call the job complete which can lengthen the job.

Experience

When you first get in contact with a TV wall mounting service, make sure to check for references or reviews.

Reviews can assure you the installer has the appropriate experience for the job. Experienced pros may charge more for their work, but will be well-versed in how to mount it safely and securely.

Previous customers will share details of their projects and experience. This can give you insight into your own installation. For example, they might say they regret that they didn’t hide the cords and cables. This might influence you to learn from their experience and ensure the cords are hidden when you mount your own TV.

Location

As you'll be mounting the TV in your home, you'll need to look at the cost of living in your area. This can influence how much supplies are as well as your expectations for the installation costs.

The rates of local installers will be influenced by their cost of living. So if you live in an area with a higher cost of living expect their rates to reflect these factors.

Summary

Hiring a pro to wall mount your TV is a great decision. It's an efficient way to get the TV up on the wall and reduce the clutter in your living room.

They can also answer any questions you might have about the best position for your TV. Get the right viewing angle right away.

Not to mention that with the help of a specialist, you'll know your TV is properly mounted. With a secure installation, you can watch your TV without worrying it will fall off your wall. Thanks to a TV wall mounting service, your living room will be an enjoyable, safe place to spend your time.
