I'm refinishing my floors and I want to know if I can safely remove my valve floor plate myself? Do I need to get a plumber to remove it and come back and replace it?

Our Answer:

The floor plate/escutcheon is a purely decorative piece that can be unthreaded and then rethreaded without an issue. It has no direct contact with the seal in the gas valve, so a gas leak will not be an issue.
