Can get unbearably hot in the summer even up here in central Scotland! Not too keen on internal blinds to reduce the heat. Quite favour the insert kits where a foil type material is inserted into the profile but means removing and replacing the end tape etc so invalidating the guarantee.
Perhaps solar film is the way forward?
Anyone any experience of the different options?
Best solution is glass roof ,There is a new self cleaning blue tinted glass on the market designed for this type of situation,Not really as expensive as you would think.
Ask your local conservatory installers for more information

We have solar film on our glass roofed conservatory (12x18ft). Other than cutting down on the glare on the telly it does not cut down the summer heat and does nothing to retain heat in the summer. We have considered replacing the roof with a proper insulated one but now think we are going to opt for a stove for those winter months (Oct-Feb) when the conservatory is colder than the fridge!
