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.

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?
