    Hi all, I'm planning on making our conservatory a little bit more habitable all year round. I'm not expecting miracles, but just something to take off the edge in the winter and a bit of help in the summer.

    Looking online, there seems to be various ways, but I don't want to start drilling the glazing bars and upvc like many have. We may decide to move in 5 years time and I don't want something too permanent and don't want to damage anything!

    Two ideas:

    1. Going down the multifoil route. Gluing batons to the glazing bars using stixall or similar, then multifoil, baton, then clad with upvc.

    2. Gluing 50mm thick insulation boards directly to the glazing bars, making good of all the edges with trims then finish with thermal lining paper and paint.

    My concerns are will stixall be strong enough to hold either option? I'm edging towards number, as insulation boards have better thermal ratings. But I've read online that you cannot glue foil backed boards. Any reason why not?

    Lastly, what about polysterene boards instead of insulation boards?

    Thanks.
