Cypress is a pretty durable weather resitant wood. Some say it needs nothing done to it. I would put a coat of semi transparent stain on it. If it will last a long time with nothing on it, surely it wood last even longer protected. You could also use thompson water seal [it is easy to apply] but it is hard to get it to last 2 years. Be sure to wash the exterior down first if it has been up for a while. You can use bleach and water to wash it down with. That will remove any mildew and also bring back some color to the wood if it is weathered.
