FLAT TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATION
We posted this flat TV wall mount to show the actual process and labor involved to complete a project like this.
When a customer does decide to go with a professional, often times they have questions like "What's it going to cost?" or "Why does it cost that much just to mount a TV?" or "Why do I need an outlet behind the TV instead of running the TV cord in the wall with the rest of the wires?" . Questions like these are fair and should be asked so that you know what value you are getting for the work that is performed. We invite you to ask these questions and any others. After all, when you spend between $200 and $10,000 for flat TV, you want it (and the mount it is attached to) to be well secured to your wall.
This customer wanted a 55" LED Smart TV mounted to a Stairway wall with an AC outlet behind the TV and all wires concealed in the wall.
The first obstacle was to find wall studs that would allow us to attach the mount
to the stairway studs. Most wall studs are vertical, 16" or 24" apart. But stairway wall studs can be tricky because the stair 2x8 boards, which are behind the wall, are (obviously) angled to go up. So we first have to find studs that allow us to hang the TV at the proper height and as close to the center of the wall as possible. Here we go...
3. Install a bottom outlet for the component wiring to exit the wall. Fish pull strings in the wall to be able to pull the wiring. [This customer wanted the lower outlet to be about 1 foot below the TV for future plans to have wall mounted shelves installed.] Attach mount arms to the back of the flat TV. Attach flat TV to mount on the wall.
