What to Look for in a Home Theater Installer

Excited to upgrade to your entertainment with a professional home theater installation? Finding the right person for the job can be difficult. Often, handymen think they're suited for complicated tasks after mounting a few televisions. Research is vital to ensure you work with a real company, not someone doing generic, underwhelming jobs on the side. To make your theater vision a reality, do you know what to look for? Start by searching for the attributes mentioned in this blog, which will ensure a comprehensive, customized solution for your Dallas, TX home.

One-on-One In-Home Consultations

A common problem when it comes to home theater installations is getting stuck with a solution that doesn't fit your space or your family's preferences. In many cases, inexperienced installers come with an idea in mind and do little to adapt it to individual projects. During your search, ask companies whether they offer one-on-one in-home consultations before getting started. This step is vital to ensuring they create a home theater design unique to you. Once they've met with you, they’ll understand space limitations, how you want to use your theater, and the content you’d like to see. Consultations should always be a two-way conversation, with your installer asking your questions and requesting your feedback instead of just spouting suggestions.


Best-In-Class Audio/Video Components

Another worry during a home theater installation is getting stuck with faulty equipment. When looking for the ideal company, find out what type of products they work with for their projects. For how many of them are they certified dealers? Audio and video manufacturers often only work with authorized sellers who have undergone specialized training on how to best use their products. Rely on official listings on the manufacturer websites to crosscheck any certifications or partnerships that your installer mentions. Enjoy the ultimate AV quality by working with established brands like Sony, Samsung, and Marantz. Are you interested in incorporating a specific brand? Notify us during your consult, and we'll let you know if it would be the right fit for your system.

Full-Scale All-in-One Solutions

Not only do you need to worry about AV during your installation, but about the other technology in the room that will affect your viewing environment. You don't want to go with a different company for each of these, resulting in a longer project timeline and a bloated budget. Employ installers offering a wide range of technology features, resulting in a comprehensive and cohesive theater environment. During our installs, we ensure it's easy for our clients to set the perfect atmosphere with one-touch control of lights, climate and shades. All of our installations include URC control solutions that give you the option to manage everything from a dedicated touchpad, mobile app, or even voice commands.

A Strong History of Excellence

Nothing is a greater signifier of a company's quality than their past work. During your search, look for companies with reviews and project galleries online to give you a better feel for what they can do. Have a look at their online profiles on Facebook, Google, Houzz, and Angie's List. As you look through their reviews, you'll hear from clients firsthand what makes them stand out from other companies in Frisco, McKinney, Wiley and the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area.
