I use this one. Seems to do what it says on the tin. ie I am siiting in the house with no aircon and I am not hot,outside is stifling. Anyone got any informed opinions on this versus the cheaper foil ?
if you do not use aircon then best not to use it as it traps the warm air in the room and dosnt allow it to escape.
have you thought about installing some sort of ventiliation in the roof space to extract the hot air, plant trees/shrubs near walls that have direct sunlight.open doors and windows for cross flow ventilation.

Also, what I have is 60cm tall beams up there in the attic with the gypsum ceiling attached at the bottom of them. So should I just roll this stuff out on top of the beams (leaving the 60cm air space between the beams or cut it so that it fits in the spaces between the beams and roll it out directly on top of the gypsum ceiling?
ummmm, what are your walls made of?

Exterior, 20 cm cement block, interior 10 cm cement block.... 2 story house, except for sleeping, I am usually in one of two rooms downstairs. There is a 6 cm space between the first and second floors (for the height of the beams), but that is not accessible except through the small openings if you remove a light fixture.
