PICKING THE RIGHT
There are dozens of styles of mounts. We install three styles regularly, but we install them all. Read a little about where you would use the different styles and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
The flat or fixed mount is ideal for TVs installed right at eye level. It’s become quite uncommon to use flat mounts, but they do still have their place. They’re one of the most cost-effective ways to get a slim appearance. They are also kind of difficult to work behind and sometimes require recessed plugs and/or adapters for cabling to fit.
The tilt mount is by far the most popular. It’s nearly as slim as the majority of flat mounts and allows up to 15 degrees of adjustment for installation well above eye level. This is ideal for bedrooms and above fireplaces.
We actually carry a couple variations of this mount to accommodate existing wall plate layouts and various surface materials.
Full Motion Mount
The full motion or articulating mount is the second most common. It allows that left and right angle adjustment. It’s ideal for corner installations, recessed cabinetry, or any situation where rear access might be needed. Because of the way the mount extends it creates exponential pressure on the attachment points. We may decline installation of full motion mounts due to size and/or surface materials due for safety concerns.
While still not quite a complete list, some of the other mounts we install are, Ultra Thin Mounts, Recessed Mounts, Pole Mounts, Ceiling Mounts, Down-and-Out Mounts (aka Mantel Mounts), Video Wall Mounts, and of course Motorized Mounts.
We do them all but outside of the most popular three we’ll need to work with you to provide a more custom quote. Which we’re happy to do.
HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR
We can mount to virtually anything, but prices and required hardware will vary. Knowing before arrival will allow us quote more accurately and ensure that we are as well-equipped as possible.
Also known as sheet rock. Very smooth. The slight texture actually comes from painting. If you can press a small thumbtack into the surface fairly easily you likely have Drywall. If it looks like drywall, but is very hard, you may have plaster.
STONE / ROCK
Similar to brick, it’s pretty easy to tell if you have stone, but it’s not so easy to tell if you have full natural stones or a stone fascia. Natural stone is incredibly difficult to mount to and we will need to allow the appropriate time.
BRICK / BLOCK
It’s pretty easy to tell if you have brick, but we have seen faux brick tile. The most important thing for us to know about brick is how old the house (or brick) actually is. This will dictate whether we’re anchoring into the mortar or the brick itself.
Ship lap is very much in style right now, so we’ve been mounting to it a good bit lately. You would also select wood for any exterior siding applications. This includes wood paneling, masonite (hardiboard), and wood shingle.
