Clean the treated plywood. It is important for this surface to be clean and completely dry for the double-sided tape to adhere correctly.
Place the double-sided tape around the perimeter of the deck surface. Peel back one side of the double-sided tape to secure it to the treated plywood. Be sure to press the tape solidly to the plywood to ensure a good seal.
Roll the carpet out to cover the deck area.
Pull back one side of the carpet to allow yourself to remove the backing from the double-sided tape. Place the carpet carefully and evenly onto the tape. Work from one corner to the other, pulling the carpet tight to avoid bubbles and wrinkles.
Repeat step 4 until all sides of the carpeting have been secured by the tape.
Press the carpet into the tape on all sides to be sure it is securely in place.
Cut away the excess carpeting, trying to leave the edge of the carpet even with the edge of the deck.
