Tips And Professional Advice For Wall Mounting Your Own TV
If you are handy enough to attempt your own TV mounting project without help from a professional installer, take care to ensure the TV mount is properly fastened to the wall before hanging the TV onto the bracket. Mounting a TV with a tilt mount to basic drywall with wooden studs can be done by the average do-it-yourself enthusiast with a drill, tape measure, and level.
If you plan to mount your TV above a brick or stone fireplace, consulting one of our professional TV installers is probably one of the smartest phone calls you can make. Stone and brick fireplace TV mount installations are trickier than standard fireplaces with wooden studs. Our TV installers use special anchors and bolts to ensure weight compliance. We have seen and repaired many wall mount installations on brick and stone fireplaces from less experience wall mount installers that pull away from the wall after a while. The problem may not occur overnight but if not properly installed, the wall mount can gradually pull away from the wall, causing the TV to lean and eventually crash to the floor.
Never rely on that little built-in level that is made into the TV wall mount. These levels are more for appearance and to increase sales for the vendor than to give you accuracy for your TV installation. Use at least one professional-grade level to avoid your TV being crooked after the installation.
Proper Height To Reduce Eye Strain For Optimal TV Viewing
We have our professional opinion of the proper height for your TV, but will mount the TV at whatever height you request. The main thing to consider is your health.
TVs mounted too high will cause you to lift your eye muscles to view the top of the screen for scores and other information streams that may roll across your screen. This can cause sore necks, migraine headaches and a lack of desire to watch TV. We strongly suggest keeping the TV as low as possible—especially when mounting your TV over or above the fireplace.
Viewing distance and furniture height can also be factors to consider when determining proper TV height. Tilting TV mounts ease the pain of mounting the TV higher than normal by giving you the ability to tilt the TV picture down at an angle. Tilt mounts can also reduce unsightly glare from windows and doors.
We found this article on CNET about TV height very informative.
You should also consider the placement of your home theater speakers. From furniture placement to the number of speakers, there are endless factors that can cause your system to perform poorly. Let us help you optimize the placement of your speakers and make your home theater system sound like you are sitting in the front row at the movies!

10 Reasons To Use Our Professional TV Mounting Service
1. Falling TVs send a child to the ER every 30 minutes! The number of kids injured by a TV falling on them grew 125 percent between 1990 and 2011. TVs can injure or even kill kids and pets when placed on dressers and stands. Kids are naturally intrigued by colors and sounds. They will climb up on furniture to get closer and touch the TV when unattended. A few rocks back and forth and your TV, along with your child may be headed straight to the floor.
2. Wall mounting your TV lengthens its life. How? Wall mounted TVs require you to use the remote. No more pressing the buttons on the TV causing possible damage or, worse still, tipping it over from rocking back and forth.
3. More space in your home. Especially if you’re concealing components in a closet or cabinet.
4. Better viewing angle. Wall mounted TVs offer more options for viewing angles and glare reduction as opposed to watching the TV sitting on a stand.
5. Wall mounted television sets are more theft proof. Table-top installed TVs are easy targets during home invasions because they are high-priced, easy to sell, and easy to carry. Theft of wall mounted TVs is very difficult and very time-consuming because of lag bolts and mounting brackets attaching the TV to the wall.
6. We have been doing this for years. We carry all the necessary tools to complete most installations in less than an hour. The cost of our tools, TV wall mounts and your hours of labor are more than compensated for with our affordable pricing. Plus, you have the peace of mind knowing that your kids can sit right underneath the TV and eat a bowl of cereal on the floor if they like.
7. Apart from safety, experience is the number one reason. We have installed more than 20,000 televisions and monitors since we began our TV mounting service in that beat up old red Safari minivan years ago. With your trust and loyalty, we have become Charlotte’s top choice in professional TV wall mounting and home theater installation.
8. Attention to detail and warranty. Our technicians ensure that each installation supports a minimum of twice the weight of your TV or we will not hang it. Every installation comes with a LIFETIME “NO FALL WARRANTY”. We guarantee every one of our TV installations.
9. Safety. Most amateur TV installers will mount the TV too high and may install wiring that will void your home’s warranty, cause it to fail safety inspections and possibly even catch on fire.
10. Maintain your home warranty. Fishing your TV’s factory power cord in the wall is illegal and a fire hazard. We install a power bridge behind every TV wall mount installation to ensure it is up to electrical code. We hide the audio/video cables in the wall when possible to ensure your TV installation is not only functional but pleasing to the eye and a compliment to your beautiful home.

What Sizes And Types Of TVs And Monitors Do We Mount?
In our experience, 32-inch to 80-inch flat screen TVs and monitors are best for wall mounting.
Anytime a customer is considering purchasing a TV larger than 80 inches, we strongly suggest purchasing a high-definition projector. This not only cuts space needed for installation, but with our home theater installation prices you can cut costs as well! We install high-definition projector and screen systems capable of producing stunning high-definition 1080p and 4k ultra high-definition home theater pictures from 70 inches up to a stunning 300 inches!
