We used peel and stick tiles from Armstrong on our screened in porch. It looks great, easy to clean and it's inexpensive.

OK, what are state are the beams? Is all the flooring in bad condition or just patches?
I believe pressured treated plywood would do the job.
A picture would kind of help.

There's your answer. Take it all down and replace with pressure treated.

Or at the very least remove all the rot and and sister in new wood.
