Our contractor used a waterproof tongue & groove particle board type product 
for the sub-floor decking of the room above our garage. I saved the 
cut-offs. It has proved very strong and durable/waterproof. Pieces left 
outside for years have weathered to gray but not otherwise deteriorated.

My flat bed car trailer has pressure treated 2X decking. It is screwed to 
the steel framing with torx drive self-tapping flat head screws.
