comment What are the pros and cons of UV window film?
Thanks, we've had a similar experience. Tinting has its place, but it is not a panacea. We've added some external awnings to our house. See the main question edits.

comment What benefit do plasterboard/drywall screws have?
If you can, drill into a stud. It will prevent a whole bunch of problems with crumbling plaster.

comment What material should be used behind a sink and range in the kitchen?
Check your local building regulations. According to Australia building regulations, you must have a fire-resistant wall next to your cook top. When we had ours installed, they simply cut out the plaster to a width of a metre behind the cooktop and added the special plaster board. The splashback was then installed over this.
