Plumbing help

Hello - I have a 70's tub/faucet, etc. and need the diverter replaced. Because of corrosion, I was also going to have the spout and faucets replaced. The estimate given to me was close to 400.00 by a handyman. I was thinking this could be high? I tried taking the spout off myself, but there's so much corrosion I can't even see the screw and because everything is old, he said he had to order the parts. Any advice would be appreciated.

$400 is not high for the job proposed. However, it's probably a bandaid when surgery is required. Save your money for the gut job that it needs.

Thank you - limited funds at this point so may have to go with it. The tub and shower are in decent shape. I appreciate your response!
