It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

Sometimes there is a lot of sediment released into the pipes (particularly hot water) when water lines are shut down and restarted as part of a remodel process.
Particularly with a pressure balanced faucet this can create all types of symptoms including those you describe...
Before you go to any expensive lengths, check any intake screens or strainers, both on the faucet and in the other components of the system. A lot of the time this will solve the problem...

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.
1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?
If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.
2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.
Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.
Hope this helps.
