Deck Flooring for oceanside top floor condo


I'm trying to figure out an alternative to carpet on our deck. We are the top floor and next to the ocean so it gets a lot of salt and water. Has to be waterproof because it's above the neighbors deck below. A handyman told me he uses DeckMate vinyl but I'm having trouble finding what/where that is. Any advice?

You must give us a better description of the deck--is this a concrete balcony?

Kinda hard to see but rubber is buckling and carpet deteriorating.
