Why should I get help mounting my flat-screen TV on the wall?
Flat-screen TVs are expensive, somewhat delicate, and surprisingly heavy. A professional tv installation will safeguard the investment you’ve already made in your TV, as well as safeguarding your back and your drywall. Also, a pro installer can help you determine the best location for mounting, to help make your home theater as epic as possible.
What’s included with TV Wall Mounting service?
- Installation of provider-supplied standard, non-swivel TV mounting bracket
- Securing the TV and load testing the hardware
- Connecting TV to cable or satellite source
- Cord concealment within provider-supplied cover
- TV mounting is for drywall only
What do I need to do before my TV Wall Mounting appointment?
Please make sure you have the TV power cord on hand before your appointment. You should also provide an HDMI cord if you’d like your TV to be connected to your cable, satellite, DVD player, or game system. When the service provider arrives to mount your flat-screen to the wall, you’ll need to show him the wall where the TV goes, the appropriate outlet (directly below or behind your TV), and the accessories to be connected to the TV, like cable, satellite, DVD, or game systems.
Where will I see cords when the TV Wall Mounting service is completed?
At the very top and very bottom of your cord cover, it’s possible that your cords will be visible. However, if you have a TV stand under your mounted TV, it will likely conceal the cords extending out of the bottom of your cord cover. Your TV Wall Mounting pro will install the cord cover so that it extends at least an inch higher than the bottom of your mounted TV, so your TV will likely conceal the cords extending out of the top of your cord cover.
Do I have the right kind of walls for TV Wall Mounting service?
Homes with walls made of drywall are covered in TV Wall Mounting service. For example, inform Boston Home Services prior setting up your appointment if you want your TV Wall Mounted on brick (such as on a fireplace), concrete or steel (in an industrial loft), or if you have an older home with plaster and lath walls. For those wall types, the work will be more complex and often requires more than one specialist to do it properly.
Where should I get my TV Wall Mounted?
The TV installer can help you determine the best location, based on the location of the power outlet, the location of wall studs (to support the weight of your TV), and where you plan to sit or lie down while watching the TV. The pro will want to know if you’ll be sitting, standing, or lying down, so that the height of the TV will be comfortable for your neck. And, for that reason, TV Wall Mounting on or above a fireplace is rarely the best choice, even if it doesn’t involve drilling through solid brick or stone. A tilting TV mount or swivel mount can help or solve the issue, if you decide a higher location is truly the best option for your room. Tilting and swivel mounts generally cost a bit more than standard mounts.
