The past few months I have started getting a loud noise when turning off the hot water in the bath tub. This had not occurred in the past years. It only affects the hot water line when the water is being turned off, its a loud vibration. the cold water turns off fine (no noise). How can I fix this? It is a standard two control faucet, I have copper pipe, the faucett is I believe sterling brand.

Sounds like you may just need to replace the washer on the valve stem.
See "Repair/Fix-It" above and go to http://www.bhglive.com/homeimp/ for illustrated how-to info.
Good Luck!
