A frozen valve requires extra work-space access in order to maneuver with a plumbers btool set so as to not damage the pipes inside the wall. That means, typically, that the wall has to be opened from the front of the tub where the valve comes out to the faucet/fixtures or the wall has to be opened from the behind the tub, if accessible. I there is tile work involved, this portion of the job could be involved to repair sheeetrock and/or match and replace possible broken tile.

The valve and fixture replacement like showewr head faucet and handles is typically in the range for $300-$400, and the repair of a wall section with tile would add an additional $100.

Total estimate shoudl be about $500 with wall repairs included. This does not include the cost of a new valve and a new tub/shower water fixture set.
