WHERE WILL THIS TV INSTALLATION TAKE PLACE?

TV installation on regular drywall
Regular wall, drywall and studs... how hard is it to wall-mount a TV, right?
Well, most of the time, it's not very hard. This is one of the most common projects we get to do. Yet even there may be some "surprises." After all, no one has the X-ray vision to know exactly what's going on behind the drywall.
For example, flat / tilted wall mounts are safe to use on drywall. The installer, of course, will need to use the anchors graded for the right weight (your TV plus the weight of the wall mount itself.) And by the way, some wall mounts are heavy!
If you're going for a full-motion mount, then the load on the wall is much greater. Which means the bracket needs to be secured to the studs. If the studs aren't in the right spot, we'd have to open the wall and re-enforce it.
The type of studs used in your wall also makes a difference. Steel studs are malleable and don't hold the screws as well as wooden studs. Which means they can't take on quite as much load.
If after hanging the TV on the wall you will also want to conceal the cables, knowing what's behind that drywall is important. Is it all hollow space or is it filled with insulation? Are there any ducts, electrical wires or plumbing pipes? (And you sure don't want to hit any of these with the drill.)
No Canadian home is complete without a fireplace (or several fireplaces). And sticking a large-screen TV on top of it makes so much sense. It's so natural. It's like yin and yang, ping and pong, salt and pepper. (Sorry, I may have allowed myself to get carried away with these metaphors.)
Before you go ahead and mount a TV on top of your fireplace, there are a few things for you to consider:

TV mounting in condos and apartments
Hanging a TV on a wall in a condo or an apartment unit makes so much sense: Every square inch of space is at the premium. And a TV that's on the wall is not only more pleasant to watch, it saves you so much room! It's like your place has just become bigger.
High-rise construction present a whole new set of potential issues to take into account. Load bearing walls, walls made out of concrete, or walls that are too thin and flimsy, HVAC units "buried" inside the wall, etc... that's just a short list of things we need to check before we can start the work.
Generally, we tell our customers NOT to use full-motion wall mounts in condos. When the arm of the mount is extended, the lever is long and the momentum that's twisting and pulling the bracket away from the wall is so strong! If the wall gives way, that brand new awesome TV is coming down, crashing on whatever - or whomever - happens to be under it.
If you insist on having a full-motion mount in a condo, we recommend that you re-enforce the wall first. Which will, of course, make it a much bigger and more expensive project. Yet that's the best way to do it that's also safe.
Many customers are looking to recreate the experience of a movie theatre at home.
Did you know that our brains judge the quality of the video we're watching, to a large degree, by the quality of the sound? It happens subconsciously.
So having a nice big-screen TV is usually not enough. Only coupled with a good audio system will it give you the experience you were looking for when you bought it. And that's how you end up with a home theatre.
Modern audio systems take into account the room layout, the way the sound bounces off the walls and the furniture, as well as the listener's location. A audio system like this needs to be calibrated to give you the experience it designed to provide.

Hide those ugly wires... we can help!
So you have the TV on the wall... what's wrong with that picture? Well, it's the ugly cables sticking out of it, of course!
It's no surprise that most people want to get rid of them, hide them inside the wall.
First things first, let's talk about safety and building codes. Power cables are not to be used inside the wall. Nor are extension cords. If you don't want to see the power cord, you need to build an electric receptacle behind the TV. A certified electrician can do that for you: Install an electric box, run wires, and build a receptacle.
Low-voltage cables, on the other hand (HDMI, audio, or speaker cables) can go inside the wall or a wall conduit.
The process of hiding the cables inside the wall usually involves "fishing." Which means making two holes in the drywall, putting the end of the cable into one of them, catching it and pulling it out of the other hole. Fishing tape and other special equipment may be necessary here.
If it's a straight vertical drop from the TV down, its' a simple
