carpeting deck

Wife wants to put I/O carpet over wood deck. Possible? What about moisture? I screwed up and said (yea no problem) then I got to thinkin about it. Their is a roof on the deck but rain blows in from sides. Any suggestions ?

The deck will dry from underneath, just takes longer.
If it's Pressure treated lumber, it should be okay. It will reduce the life of the wood to some degree. My neighbors put i/o carpet on their uncovered deck, but I beleive he put down a protective rubber membrane first. That would be a good idea. It wouldn't
have to be the real thick stuff.
