Thank you for your question, Steve. We recommend installing the valve with the stringer 2 3/4" from the finished wall. If it is installed too far forward, you can close the stops up to 3 turns from the open position without a noticeable reduction in flow rate. This should allow an additional 1/8" of clearance for the escutcheon. However, we do not make an escutcheon that is designed to compensate for the installation issue.
