Are you using the original home button? A different home button does not work at all anymore, the clicking part and Touch ID.

Was it it good quality screen or a cheap one?

What if its cheap screen? I have the same issue.. Everything works fine after screen replacement but the home button isnt responsive anymore. Although everything seems to be fine with it.

it could be, the touch id cables are often defective.

Replacement home buttons on the 7 and 7 plus should theoretically work (the hardware is there) but it needs to be programmed by Apple and therefore will not work and also since it's a trounce sensitive button and no longer moves the button function is linked to Touch ID rendering the button useless unless Apple can program it but they require a full screen replacement in order to do it.
