I'm 6'5 over 300 lbs. I can make it move. Is it possible to make it rigid enough with an extra layer of 3/4 - or with 5/4s plywood? Or must we go to a more flexible membrane?

The system you are comfortable with, or that can be installed, with the level of confidence to warranty the installation, can be affected by the actual space available, IE.
the difference between the deck surface and the floor level of the dwelling, as well as how many layers of material are presently on the deck surface.

The least costly of which would be the MA or similar, or what you have expressed as a less than desirable alternative.

Were I to walk the deck I would explain the alternatives to you, as well as give you the
estimates for those alternatives, as a courtesy.

Snoonyb I really appreciate your taking the time to help here. I know you are taking valuable time and I appreciate it. The deck is about 13 ft sq and solid. I can walk on it w/o feeling any softness or flex. But you can feel the vibrations (not so much flex) as someone walks around. With a 13' span I would expect that, but don't know its implications for this type of system. I am 6'5" & over 300 lbs. I can jump and that someone can really feel through their body, but again it really doesn't feel like much flex.

That's probably why the MA system was suggested.

The LIFEDECK products are locally available to the public and their tech. dept. is available for methods of addressing difficulties which can be accomplished without much special knowledge.As I said, the repairs can be a simple as the application of a new finish coat, a gal. of finish, a paint roller and a cheap 4" paint brush.

I don't work for LIFEDECK, I'm an optimistic talented laborer.
