Its good that they are in place because dipping is a bummer.

I assume they are rough side out, which makes spraying a pretty good option depending on what is around that would require protection. You might want to consider a pump sprayer, like a garden style sprayer that you can strap right on your back. We have a 2 gallon rig that works pretty slick...no overspray or mist.

I thought about using a garden type sprayer but do you need to backbrush? the cabot 3000 is a 1 coat application correct? why makes this protect stand out to any others?

If the shakes are rough side out they will grab it pretty good. The challenge is to get it into the little gaps between the shakes without loading up the faces too much. The beauty of it is, unlike stains and other paint apps, 3000 on rough shakes doesnt show any trace of brush marks, so you could keep a brush handy and use only as needed. I think once you got the feel for it, it would work pretty slick. I will tell you that if you do all brushwork on a cedar shake house it is about twice as labor intensive as a clapboard sided house.

Let us know how it works. Its always good to get feedback from someone who hasnt tried that method. Maybe you will tweak it and make it even more efficient.
