4 Reasons to Opt for Professional Mirror Installation
Mirror installation may not seem difficult, but there are hidden complexities that, if not addressed, can cause damage to your mirror and injury to you. By hiring a professional, you’ll get a perfectly positioned, securely hung mirror instead of glass splinters in your carpet.
Benefits of Professional Mirror Installation
- Prevent installation damage – Moving a heavy, cumbersome object takes practice. A handyman experienced with mirror installation can do so without scratching the glass, chipping or breaking the frame or, worst of all, dropping the whole thing. If you’re hanging the mirror above furniture or a fireplace, professional installation minimizes the risk of a dropped mirror damaging items underneath it.
- Ensure secure mounting – Due to differences in wall material and mirror supports, hanging a mirror securely isn’t a straightforward job. For instance, incorrectly installed brackets can come loose from the wall. Even if the mirror look secure, a slammed door or a kid jumping on the sofa could bring it down. A professional knows which mirror installation techniques work best for different walls and mirrors.
- Get the best hanging technique – By hanging the mirror yourself, you may be tempted to opt for the simplest technique, which may not be the best. A professional has access to a variety of mounting materials, such as adhesives and L-channels, that are likely to be more secure and more attractive than common DIY options.
- Protect your safety – Why risk letting your home decorating project turn sour because you put your back out lifting a mirror, sliced your hand on the edge or dropped the thing on your foot? A professional has the tools and know-how necessary to handle a heavy mirror easily, so there’s little risk to your handyman and none to you.
Hiring an experienced local handyman is the most reliable way to get your mirror installed safely and attractively, especially if your mirror is an antique or has great sentimental value.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
