Its always the worst part of the job..period. I do a lot of commercial pulling and some residential, when things look to complex or I think I will butcher a wall or ceiling it time to call in somebody who did or does just pulls for a living. Retired Verizon people are VERY good and really know all the tricks. To Answer your question there is tons of threads on this but might be scattered in different subforms here.

Yeah that’s the price range I’ve heard. I’ll probably have them just mount the things while they are up there. I have a guy who I really like but he uses digital watchdog.

Knowing The basics of how a home is built is a good place to start.
What about some homes that have mid-span blocks between all the studs? Those always make it harder to run cables up or down the full wall.Buy a $15 stud finder, and a 10 pack of fist sticks from harbor freight. If you need to run wires along an exterior wall, most times there are 3/4 furring strips that run vertical. Sometimes builders run one rogue furring strip horizontal and screw up your plans. If you are running wires in an interior wall, there are usually studs every 16", sometime 24", with a top plate that runs across all of the studs on that wall. Older construction used wood 2X4 studs, newer constriction uses metal studs and top plates. Of course, Canadians always do things their own way.
