Moen makes a decent one but they all look gaudy and too big you can tell it was converted. I try to upsell into a complete remodel and do the job right!

smitty plates work but yea they look bad, OK for rentals, I always try to talk em into just rebuilding 2 handle valves, easy to fix, good volume, rugged, reliable, just not sexy.

I use Pasco ones because of the lower prices. The Moens are nicer and quite a bit more $$ but they all look bad. I try to only use them on rentals. When these situations arise, it makes me wish I was more proficient at tile. I would like to be able to offer an entirely new surround but I'm not that good...




yet. ;)

I've usually use the Smitty as a get by, but I have used Wolverine Brass a time or two.
Funny thing is in Section 8 rentals, the tenant LOVE the Smitty plate because it is shiny. I put in a two tone Wolverine brass faucet in a Section 8 a few years ago and the tenant thought I was "hookin' them up" because their faucet was "gold n' 'plat-num'":thumbup:

I use the Moen plates myself. I used to use the Pasco ones because they were cheaper, but every time I installed one, I'd end up with cuts on my fingers from the sharp edges.
