Question

My front porch, which is made of 2 1/4' boards, is about 2/3 exposed and is getting pretty soft. I'd like to completely rebuild, but I cant afford to for a couple more years. As a quick-fix I'm thinking of covering the exposed areas with 1/2' plywood and painting it. Is this a good idea? Also what can I use to seal the seams between the plywood sheets?

Thanks in advance.

I'm unclear on what you've really described here!

I don't recommend plywood to the exposure even if painted. Fiberglass and resin maybe, but not paint.
