skip trowel ceiling

letty, Welcome to the Forum
Ask your Contractor to show you an example of what he means by light or skip trowel. There are many more variations than just two.
try Google
or if that Link does not work on your computer to get sample pics it may be your browser
My Browser is 'Google Chrome I just Goggled "skip trowel finish"
to get sample pics

this is something that the tapers do last so while the tapers are taping your house have them make a few samples on some left over scrap drywall .
