2nd story porch in florida question


I have a 2nd story wood porch, Need to tear up and replace.

I was thinking of using 3/4 t&g plywood untreated or 3/4 treated plywood.

Flashing on the sides and peal and seal on top of the wood with outdoor carpet.

Do any of you have any suggestions

Thanks in advanced
