The Art & Science of TV Mounting: NYC’s Best Kept Secrets

Did you just purchase a new flat-screen TV? If so, you’re probably deciding on the best place to mount it. But before you get started you should know that TV mounting in New York City apartments and condos can be very difficult. There are a few key tips and tricks you should know before getting started.
In this article, we’ll share five of the most important things to consider when it comes to the art and science of mounting a flat-screen TV in your NYC home.

Top 5 Tips & Tricks For TV Mounting in NYC

1. Choose the Right Location

Before doing anything, you’ll want to choose the best location for the TV. Consider the room’s layout, seating arrangement, and viewing angles. You’ll also want to make sure the TV is at eye level when seated and positioned to minimize glare from windows and lights.

2. Find Wall Studs
Use a stud finder to locate wall studs for secure mounting. Mounting brackets should be anchored to at least two studs for stability.
3. Consider the Wall Type
Different wall types (concrete, drywall, brick, etc.) will require different installation techniques. This can be very complicated and it’s best to consult with experts if you’re unsure of the specific techniques needed based on wall type.
4. Use the Right Mount
Select a compatible TV wall mount that supports your TV’s size and weight. There are many types available, such as fixed, tilting, or full-motion mounts, depending on your needs.
5. Always Measure Twice
Double-check your measurements and use a level to ensure the TV is mounted straight and centered.

Building Regulations and NYC TV Mounts – Do You Need a Permit?

Most people living in NYC don’t realize their building might have regulations or permits required for TV mounting (this is especially true for condos). Always check with your building manager or consult with a professional mounting service to make sure you comply with local regulations.

Should I Hire a Professional TV Mounting Service?

Mounting a TV can be extremely challenging, especially if you lack the expertise for the job. If you don’t have experience mounting TVs, consider hiring a professional and reputable TV mounting service in New York City. This way you can ensure your TV will be mounted correctly without risk of falling or causing damage to your walls. Professionals can also hide wires, ensure a level installation, and create a clean look that enhances the appearance of the room.

How Much Does it Cost to Mount a TV in NYC?

The base cost to have your new TV mounted is $89. Additional charges might apply if you have particularly large flat screen TVs, add on a TV mount, or choose to get in-wall cord concealment or external cord masking services.
