Jim - If you go with plywood, check with a real lumber yard. I
purchased 5x8 sheets of 3/4" exterior plywood for my balcony which is 5
x 45. It cost more than 4x8, but the time/labor savings of not ripping
1' sections and blocking for the edges was worth it.
For clarification, the plywood is covered with a metal lath, waterproof
cement, epoxy, and color/texture layers.
