They got the job done, were on time/early, reasonably priced, and pleasant; but some of the work product wasn't perfect. For the mount over the fireplace, they ran white molding just above the mantle to hide the wires, and ran strips of molding into a bookshelf on the right side of the fireplace down to a cable box and dvd player. The molding only holds two HDMI cables, plus a power cord. They didn't have a solution to run more cables, like a third or fourth HDMI cable, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do if I want to add, e.g., a game console or other device to the
. For the most part, the molding looks good, but was installed too close to adjacent surfaces so that the cover pieces that are supposed to join different sections of molding will not snap properly onto the molding. That causes the cover pieces to only snap onto one side of the molding, causing the cover pieces to protrude/bulge outward. That could have been better. I had no issues with the
mount in the other room; they hid cables inside the wall on that one, and everything looks great.

The initial response was great.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
replied to my email right away and then
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
followed up the email exchanges to finalize plans and schedule a time. On the day of the install, I received a call from the company five minutes before they were supposed to arrive to say that the technicians were running an hour late. She then called back to say it would be an hour and 15 minutes late. They ended up being an hour and 25 minutes late.
Once in our home, the gentlemen were very nice and professional.
Anchoring the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to the wall- Both technicians admitted that they had never used the kit before eventhough it was a kit that they brought with them. When done, I went down to inspect the work and noticed that he hadn't actually anchored the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to the wall, but rather screwed it into the stand that the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
was on. When I asked why he did that, he said that the chord wasn't long enough to reach the wall, so he fastened it to the stand. I reminded him that the reason I had asked for the anchoring to the wall was because I was concerned the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
could tip over, and if it's fastened to the stand all he was doing was ensuring the stand would come down with the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
if it were to fall over. The other technician stepped in and undid the fasten to the stand and re-anchored it to the wall. So, clearly the first technician was blowing smoke and didn't want to re-do it or didn't understand how to configure the strap. Even when done, the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
was not returned to it's spot properly and the chord was not snug. I had to reposition and tighten the strap after they were gone.
Mounting the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to the wall- The technician who mounted the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to the wall did a great job of stepping me through where he could put the mount, outlining what it would look like and having me sit where I would be watching
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to make sure I liked it before starting the process. I bought a Samsung
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
Smart
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
that is very thin as well as a thin wall mount with the goal of making it as flush against the wall as possible. When the technician was done the top tilted off the wall a good bit. After they left, i took the
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
down and tightened it a bit more so that it wouldn't tilt as much which is very frustrating to have to have done.
In sum, they clearly know how to mount tvs quickly and efficiently, but they weren't thorough at all. They were very late and still had another appointment after mine (which I am sure they were late for), so I'd probably attribute the lack of quality to being in a rush or atleast I hope that is why. It's tremendously irritating to spend 250 bucks and then have to redo things immediately after having paid.

was fantastic! We comunicated via email(which I prefer). He came for the appointment and I needed to order a shelf. He provided links to purchase shelves for the cable box and dvd, several options. We scheduled another appointment upon arrival of the shelf. He arrived during the time window he had provided and even called to tell me he was on his way and would arrive at a more specific time. Very knowledgeable and professional, went over the job before proceeding for my input(I agreed with everything he advised). I think the job was a little more complicated than he quoted but he proceeded with his original quote. Cleaned up the area and showed me how to operate the devices. Now everything looks great and I would give him an A+

I purchased the Big Deal to have the wall mount installed for $169. There ended up being a few extra expenses that I wasn't anticipating like paying an additional $39 because my mount was full motion (tilt and swivel). Overall it was still a good price, but it probably would have been nice to have extra items in the fine print of the deal. The technician was great and the appointment was scheduled promptly. He was on time and did a great job. I am very happy overall. I highly recommend this company.

I spoke to
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
on a Friday before Labor Day weekend and begged for his assistance to set up a tv in a new house. I sent him a few pictures of the where the tv needed be hung and where I needed wires fished. He told me he was booked all day Saturday but would fit me in for Saturday late afternoon between 3pm and 4pm. He arrived shortly after 5pm, inspected what needed to be done for about half-and-hour and decided to do the work. He did an amazing job of "fishing" the wires through the wall from one room to another with as minimal damage as possible.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
was very professional and spent over 5 hours on the entire job and refused to compromise perfection for time (although he didn't leave until after 11:30pm). Although I was ready to go to bed and get him out of my house; he refused to leave until the job was done and made sure everything was clean and working as expected. I would highly recommend this company and specifically
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
and will use again the future.

They were professional, did an awesome job, and cleaned up everything before they left. It was a small job but we had a very good experience.

promptly responded to my inquiry on their website. My questions were answered professionally and left me no doubt as to the manner of installation and what was required of me. Also- I was able to utilize a already purchased flatscreen mount based on our email dialogue. The day the installation was scheduled- they gave me a 15-minute heads-up call and arrived on time. In my home they kindly removed their shoes (much appreciated with my light color carpet) and set up a drop-cloth underneath their work areas. Both were extremely professional and courteous during my explanation of the manner in which we wished to utilize the A/V systems in both rooms. The installation went flawlessly and both workers were focused and completed their work quickly yet thoroughly. They even installed an additional A/V component that I had indicated I was planning to install later. After the work was completed, they cleaned and vacuumed the debris and dust that had accumulated. Finally- they offered expert tips on use of the peripherals I had chosen and gave sound advice as to challenges they had encountered with a particular item I was considering to add to the system. This was by far the best interaction I have had with a contractor of this nature ever. I would gladly recommend

to anyone seeking their services.

I decided it was time to finally cut the cable cord. I canceled my cable service and called
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
. From my first conversation with
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
I felt very comfortable that they would provide me with excellent service.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. We scheduled the apt for a week later. When
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
arrived to install he went through the process with me. They have a package deal where they provide a
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
antenna and all other materials including labor for a flat rate of $450. I told
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
that I already had my two tv sets wired and it would only require tapping into the line. No drilling or snaking wires would be required. He took $75 off of the price stating he wanted to be fair to his customers. This indeed is fair.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
spent quite a bit of time trying to find the best signal on my roof. He found a signal and told me where the antenna would have to be located. After hooking my TVs up I was shocked to see how many channels I received.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
even spent a bit of time calibrating my tv for the best picture. Overall this was a great experience. I'm happy to have eliminated another bill by cutting out the cable and I'm very happy with the exceptional FREE HD Reception I now get. Thanks

and his assistant were highly professional and did a very clean/impressive job mounting a 42" flat panel tv and surround sound system to my condo wall.
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
came by a week prior to the job to give me a free estimate and offered suggestions to improve my plan for the setup. He has a
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
eye for where the system should be located for maximum room benefit. The job took 4.5 hours and
Arlington Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
clearly put extra effort into hiding the numerous cables, running a new power outlet, and hiding the current cable outlet to give my entertainment a clean and professional appearance. I could not believe he only charged me $295 and I paid him $345 to thank him for the many extras of the job. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. I received quotes for this project from other companies that were hundreds of dollars more without the type of guarantee/quality
