Question Another 1 of My Ponderings 4 The MASSES AT HAND. (Deck floor boards)

Why in the Name of ZEUS do they use they use boards 4 deck floors. why not use plywood sheets or something along those lines 4 the deck floors. YES this is a oot side deck I am talking aboot. because I am going to have to something aboot mine. was oot blowing the leaves off of it. and my leg went right thru it. ended up on my TUCKUS. Because it would be cheaper to get sheets of wood. than those Deck boards if you ask me. Because I am not a gifted carpenter.

Plywood sheets are far less suitable for outdoors than regular strips of pressure treated lumber..
Its much thinner, and will de-laminate easily outdoors..its really no good for an outside deck.

Most deck floors are made from 2x8's..quite thick and robust..
If yours broke through, your deck was either built with much thinner lumber than it should have been built with, or you waited far too long to replace rotting boards..

Although I just learned, via google, there is "exterior plywood" that can be used:


https://www.hunker.com/13401518/what...-used-outdoors


Im not sure I would trust it to be weatherproof long term (like, a decade),
I would still prefer 2x8's..but I suppose it could be an option..
I see no good reason to use it though..lots of drawbacks.

wouldn't the plywood pool water and rot? I suppose you could cut it into strips but like Sscotsman said I wouldn't trust it over a 2x8

I've seen plywood deck floors. I would NEVER do it. Treated 2x6 or 2x8. Actually, now I'd probably install some type of composite deck material. It has certainly come a very long way from the old, original composite material. only thing is joists should be 12" OC instead of 16" .
