Remodeling bathroom ... had to destroy the handles on the water cutoff for the sink when removing them. Where can I buy replacement handles? I can not find them locally nor online anywhere. They are simple, small, probably cheap handles that just turn water on and off. Any advice?

If there that bad replace the whole valve.
No way would I remodel without replacing the valves.
If your also redoing the walls the valves need to come off and be capped anyway.

Walls are done, valves appear to be in good shape. I have one good handle and have been able to turn the valves just fine. Maybe I woulda shoulda replaced valves but at this point seems to be no need.

But ... still need to buy handles. Any idea where to get them?

when you say water cut off are you referring to the shut off valve?If you had to detroy the handles to get them off you should seriously consider replacing the valve.Anyway they are readily available at any hardware or box store.They do not have to match exactly astheticlly.The stems are the same.

This is modern America. No one sells parts. They all want to sell new stuff. Since you will have to buy the valve to get the handle you might as well replace the valve. Or at least save for when you need it. :)

What are we talking about here? Less than $10 for a shut off valve ?More likely $6.Could have had it changed out in less time than it took you to OP and wait for a reply?
