replacing a porch floor
 
We have a porch above a bedroom that has developed a leak.Actually it leaked about 2 times now.All the repairs have not held up,so much for a warranty.I now want to take the entire floor out,see what if any water damage there is and replace the floor/wood.I will also create a bigger slope to insure run-off.There are 4 cedar posts that are holding the railing.I think this is where the leak is,at one of the posts.I need to know what is the best material for this floor?Will it just be 5/8 outdoor grade plywood or should it be some type of pressure treated ply? The floor has to be strong enough to support 6-8 people,maybe more.Thanks!
