Re: Flooring for exposed porch
First you never double layer a floor exposed to the elements because water will go through the cracks of the top layer and be trapped between. The trapped water is what cause the warping. If wood dries more and faster on one side it warps. You could put something like Weather Guard on the existing deck then furring strips then the new decking. This allows space for the water to run off.
You said restoring do you actually mean making it look nice and new or do you mean restoring? Your answer to that question will determine what material you use.
