What would a standard TV wall mount cost to install?

In most cases, a standard TV mounting service means that the client supplies the mounting apparatus, and then the professional just does the work of attaching the TV to a wall. Prices usually go up if the pro also installs the audio-video wires and connects the TV to the wall or ceiling. For example, basic installation costs $50 but additional wiring and installation cost $69.

  • 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 articulation brackets allow for movement of TVs after they've been mounted to walls. This requires more time, effort and sometimes materials to install. Therefore, this increases the cost.

  • Tilting bracket and mounting service package: $70

  • Articulating bracket and mounting service package: $110

Does TV size matter?

TVs are usually mounted using brackets attached to walls. Some people use wall anchors while others use screws. The price depends on the type of bracket used. Most companies charge an hourly or fixed fee based on the size of the TV.

Will my wall type affect the project cost?

Walls made out of brick, concrete or stone are harder to install in-wall audio video cords than those made out of wood. You should get professional help if you need to install an in-wall A/C cord. Living rooms usually have hard surfaces, so installing TV wall mounts is easier. Harder walls are generally more expensive than soft ones. But no matter what kind of wall you use, TVs are always very heavy. You should hire professionals to mount your TV.

Home theater and surround sound systems

Home theater owners should be aware that there are different types of A/V experts. Some specialize in audio while others focus on video. You might want to ask your local cable company if they have an A/V specialist available. If they do, they may be willing to give you a free estimate.
