    "It is possible but u will you start getting them up you may not see the rot on the back of them only you can decide if they are solid enough, if you do re lay them I would give a coat of wood preserver."

    "Yes, you would need to remove several boards to replace the joists. But it can be done."

    "Yes it is possible as if the boards can hold your weight, you can reuse."
