Fireplace & Patio TV’s
We specialize in the difficult installations which include patio TVs mounting onto stucco, brick and stone walls fireplace installs. In addition to TV installations, we offer a full range of home theater and surround sound services as well.
Choose from a variety of mounting brackets to accommodate almost every size and brand of TV. If you already have your own bracket, that’s great! Please be sure to have all of the parts and mounting hardware available at your installation if it was previously used.
TV Mounting Brackets
We carry a range of TV wall brackets to accommodate just about any need. From low-profile flush mounts, flat tilt mounts, full motion articulation TV mounts, ceiling mounts, corner mounts – we have the hardware & skills to install just about any size or brand TV to any surface.
Mounting your TV above your fireplace?
The most common types of mounts for fireplaces are the Full Tilt mounts and Full Motion mounts. These allow for more precise leveling adjustments on uneven surfaces like stone, brick and slump block.
Mounting a TV on your Patio?
The most common used mounts for outdoor installation are the standard Full Motion mount and the Long Arm Full Motion mount. These allow for easy movement from side to side so the TV can be viewed from almost any location. We always recommend a good outdoor weather-proof cover to keep the dust, water and other elements out of your TV.
Mounting a Big Screen TV?
We generally recommend either a Large Tilt Mount or Large Full Motion Mount for big screen TVs. Our larger mounts can accommodate up to a 90″ TV and hold up to 230LBS. This means that it’s safe to add a soundbar and get years of safe use out of your mount installation.
Want to Ceiling Mount your TV?
Ceiling TV mounting brackets are also popular in outdoor patio installations as well as commercial applications where you would like to accomplish a broad viewing angle while keeping the screen out of reach. Ceiling mounts generally have a 2-4′-foot extension pole, but can be lengthened or shortened to accommodate your TV installation needs.
Want to Mount a TV over a 90’s style cutout or nook?
We highly recommend the Long Arm Full Motion mount for these types of TV installations. With a 42″ extendable arm, your mounting bracket can be safely attached to studs in your wall in the back of your cutout while the TV has a “floating” appearance in front of your nook. This also allows for several inches on each side for access to power & HDMI connections for future use or service.
Surround Sound Systems
Is your home prewired for surround sound?
Many new homes come prewired for surround sound straight from the builder. If you’re unsure if your home is prewired, you will want to look at the ceiling in your main family room and perhaps the patio or other rooms of your home. If you see a number of blank white plates on your ceilings – those are actually pre-determined speaker locations. Those speaker wires all typically are hidden in the wall or slightly poking out of the wall near your family room TV location or a dedicated gear closet and can be used for your surround sound and/or whole home audio setup.
Basic 5.1 Surround Package
The most common surround installation is a 5.1 with in-ceiling speakers. We are a big fan of Klipsch in-ceiling and in-wall speakers. The Klipsch Premier Reference in-ceiling speakers produce incredible sound quality, bringing the movie theater right into your home. Our basic 5.1 package includes (5) Klipsch Premier Reference in-ceiling speakers, (1) 400-watt Premier Reference Subwoofer and the incredible Denon AVRX-1600h surround sound receiver.
Basic 7.1 Surround Package
We can easily add two extra surround speakers to your prewired home to make it a 7.1 or 7.2 surround system. This type of surround system has the standard front Left, Center & Right channels, two side surround channels and two rear surround channels – giving you a total of (7) seven in-ceiling speakers around the listening position. Again, we prefer the Klipsch Premier Reference in-ceiling speakers as the main channels with either one or two Klipsch Premier Reference subwoofers and a Denon AVRX-2700h surround receiver.
Premium Surround Sound Packages
We would love to put together a custom premium sound system for your home or dedicated theater room. We have access a variety of premium surround sound and home theater equipment by Marantz, Triad, Klipsch THX, B&W, Martin Logan & Sonance.
SONOS 5.1 Surround Sound
Did you know that you can add in-ceiling speakers and a subwoofer to your Sonos Soundbar to accomplish true 5.1 surround sound? We use a combination of a Sonos Streaming Amplifier, Klipsch Premier Reference in-ceiling speakers and premium speaker wire to get your Sonos surround setup running in no time.

One of the most common places to add audio is under your outdoor patio. Many patios come pre-wired for audio and typically have fairly easy attic access if it’s not currently pre-wired. We have a variety of in-ceiling and surface mounted speakers that allow you to seamlessly bring the entertainment from inside to outside. Our outdoor audio setups offer mobile control for easy use – using either SONOS or HEOS.
