Question about Plumbing
Cold water is fine no hot water pressure
It may be that you need to rebuild the valve. There may be sediment from the hot water heater clogging it too.

If you haven't already I would go check all of the setting on your water heater. It is also possible that there could calcium deposits or other minerals that may be blocking your water in the pipes. I've had this issue before and I was able to flush some calcium out of the water heater and my hot water worked fine after that.

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.

The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.

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...

You need to replace the washer on the stem. It's a Delta so it's possible that you have the type where the washer is actually in the very bottom of the manifold instead of on the stem.
