Has anyone here ever had to replace the wood floor under a metal garden shed (10'x10')? When I put the shed together I put plywood down on treated wood that was setting on blocks and a thick plastic moisture barrier but it still has developed some soft spots. Do I just take screws out of the bottom metal rails and get some friends to move it? Will it (the shed) stay together?

Had to do it. Did like you and used treated plywood. It still rotted over time due to moisture from the sprinkler system. I bought three 2x6 and slid the shed off of the old plywood, poured a slab, slid it back and bolted it down. Still good six years later.

[Edit] PS: Mine was a Tough Shed so it held together fine.

I would consider cutting in another floor on top of existing. Sometimes less is more.

What I was thinking....if the joists are still solid I’d just slap another layer of plywood down and call it good...

That is what I would try first
