Help Identifying Window Manufacturer


We'd like to add screens to a couple windows on our home. The house was renovated to the studs last year (before we bought it) and new double hung windows were installed at that time. Before building my own or ordering custom ones I figured I'd at least see if I could track down the manufacturer and see if they were available for order. The ONLY information I can find on them is a sticker at the very top of the upper sash. There is no engraving on the glass, or the aluminum seal between the panes. I've done some googling and come up empty handed. Any help or advice on how to proceed?

Do the sashes tip down for cleaning? If so tip them and look on all sides for some markings or a sticker.
Nothing on the latch?

Didn't think to check the latch. Good call.

They do tip out for cleaning. I've only checked the lower sash on one window but couldn't find any identifying features.

The sashes are wood. The rails on the sides that house the mechanicals are vinyl. Fairly safe to assume these are a basic builder grade window, as everything else in the house is. Additional pictures coming.

Here is a shot from the outside. The guy at Lowe's said he thought it looked like a Jeld Wen?

This is the only wood product that I came up with when I searched the model numbers. Hope it helps...
If not, as mentioned above, tilt in the sashes and look for another sticker.

That's actually a semi-local company, so it's a strong possibility. Found a Jeld Wen screen at HD that is the perfect size, with the spring plungers on it. May just order those in a different shade to match existing trim.
