Carpeting a deck


Can I put indoor outdoor carpet on my deck. Will it rot the wood. We can not walk on it without getting slivers.

You can, it will trap moisture...a lot...which will rot the wood quicker
What type of wood/deck ?

Indoor/outdoor is not a real carpet type. The public calls commercial carpet indoor/outdoor, but commercial carpet will fall apart if exposed to the weather. You can use turf or marine carpet outdoors, but they are not very attractive.
