Wood
Pros: Cheap
         Easy to change shape or size as your needs for space change
         DIY - most people would be able to build it from scratch or make modifications (e.g. add windows)
         Can be converted to chazzon ish (replace metal screws with peg screws)
         Can integrate a schlock to the structure
Cons: Heavy, Can warp over time. (note: if you use enough fasteners and are also careful to assemble it balanced this can be minimized)
         Needs lots of storage space

Fiberglass
Pros: Easy Setup (on level ground)
         Length/width is reconfigurable (you just need to buy a few 2x4 beams if you change layout)
Cons: Expensive
         Greenhouse effect on hot days (need to budget for several open/shut windows)
         Connection threads can become bent even with proper storage (need to budget for the odd panel replacement here and there)
         Can Crack or Break

Canvas
Pros: Setup in minutes
Cons: Not accepted by all poskim
         Poor protection from cold Weather
         Wind Can be bothersome.

I like homemade wood sukkos the best. My father built ours so strong we always joke if a tornado swept through town it would be the only thing left standing.
Takes more effort to build each year but worth it IMHO.

Bought an 8' x 12' canvas sukkah from sukkot.com for $500 shipped to my door. (They said that there are no coupons :( ) Put it up in about 2 hours by myself (a friend helped for a few minutes, but you can do the whole thing yourself.)

Our sukka is our back deck which is up a whole year. And i connect canvas to the 3 sides and bamboo on top with a bunch of green schach on that.
Easy set up and take down.

On a related note, where can I find large schach mats on the cheap? We're talking about a space ~16x16, so it'll probably have to be at least 2 fairly large mats. If it's in the NY metro area I can pick up to save on shipping, otherwise shipping would have to factor into the cheap requirement.
