The vast majority of the general population doesn’t want to have strange people in their homes, ripping things up, and lugging around tools and materials. It’s a completely fair and common concern to be worried about your home. When your bathroom reno contractor comes to your home, one of the primary things they should talk to you about is how they will provide for their employees (ie putting out a portajohn and having an outdoor break area) and detail their timeline so that you know how much of your home and life will be interrupted by a bathroom reno contractor.
If you only have one bathroom and/or the renovation is expected to last longer than a day, then you might consider renting a hotel room or staying with friends or family to limit the interruption and stress you might have being at home during this disruption.
The vast majority of today’s bathroom renovation contractors have earned their position based on their hard work and good reputation with people. While there are certainly training programs for people to become specialized in certain areas of a bathroom renovation, for example, the plumbing industry is a highly sophisticated industry and many who become professional plumbers do so after completing a formal training program, most contractors don’t go complete a formal degree program.
That said, what most bathroom reno contractors do go through and what you can expect from any professional bathroom reno contractor and their foreman is plenty of on-the-job training. This is the type of industry that relies significantly on experience as few bathrooms are completely alike and only after completing a lot of renovations can a professional really understand things like the right type of materials for a layout and the best overall look for a home. Additionally, it’s through experience that contractors can better fast-track things like project permitting as they become more acquainted with the local laws and regulations and create a better report with the people who were in that office.
Finally, if you are having something specific done, such as extra plumbing work or you need to have your bathroom reno contractor build a wall, then you may consider asking whether or not they or their employees have specific training in that work. Again, more specialized labor like plumbing and furniture and wall-building requires skills and there are classes a contractor or their employees may undergo to ensure they are well-skilled and well-knowledgable about the task at hand.
