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.

use a magnet on both sides of the tarp
Ooh, I like it! Doesn't work for me though because the other side is a deck railing 10-15 feet off the ground.

It's too late now, but we printed or picture on waterproof canvas, and it's lasted 20 years of Sukkos in NYC without fading or warping etc.

We just use pushpins

Thumb tacks de-water proof the laminated stuff...

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Looking to use bamboo fencing for Schach.

The ones with a hecsher on them and marketed for Schach (that I saw on Amazon) are 80 dollars or so to the typical bamboo fence sold online for 5 to 10 dollars. Anyone know of an option that is kosher (I would obviously ask my LOR) that is not sold for Sukkos and as a result isn't priced high? I was told that the material holding together the bamboo should be natural.

I believe last year this was on the crc Chicago approved list for schach

That would almost definitely have to be custom, if anyone does it at all. Who makes 8.5?
