Windows would be your normal Search the List category - also Screen Repair or Handyman if these units already have slots for screens. Not a big thing to make up screens assuming you are happy with standard vinyl or aluminum (available in bare aluminum, brown, bronze and white in many areas) - framing material comes in sticks that you cut to fit, put in plastic corner fittings, then roll the screening into place, put in window frame, and install any securing clips if desired. Many types of screening available - metal, black or bronze metal, gray metal, gray and black "cloth" (polyester or nylon or whatever it is). Also copper and bronze, though those are harder to put into a frame without creases.


Can be done on-site easily - and except for copper or bronze metal screening not a tough DIY job either assuming your windows have the recessed top and bottom slots for them to fit into, at about 1/4 the cost of having it done by a contractor, if you are at all home-handy. Takes about an hour or two for first one while you learn how to do it (and maybe $25 in tools), subsequent ones quickly go from an hour down to about 15 minutes per window once you get the knack.
