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.

make sure not to put schach directly on wood. Rather, lay a beam on top of the metal frame, only than laying the schach.

Im building a sukkah on my deck. Basically it will be a frame made of 4x4 posts and 2x4 cross beams, with some type of panels fastened to them. 

Looking for ideas for panels. Doesn't need to be structural, just want it to look nice, and not too expensive. Don't want to use canvas or anything like that.

Might be worth getting a grommet tool. Not expensive and can attach cloth much easier
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

My Sukkah is made from Sunbrella panels attached to the pergola deck. It's great!

Can't remove that cleanly. Grommet you screw on and off

Bought 3 Ease-Lock sukkahs from Leiter's last year for institutional use and could not be happier. Extremely high quality materials and the reps who helped us were wonderful. Highly recommend.
