If the upper sash does NOT slide up and down, you will most likely need HALF SCREENS.
Most vinyl windows take half screens.
Half screens only cover the bottom sash
If the upper sash DOES slide up and down, you will most likely need FULL SCREENS.
Most wood windows will take full screens
Full screens cover both upper and lower sashes and have a middle cross bar.
