Hi good morning. I have these old pella windows that need repairs. Can you possibly help me find these type if balances and shoes that they go into. Thankyou.

We can help with this balance, but it might have to be a custom order due to its configuration.

Before we go any further, can you first tell me if your balance installs at the top using a hook or a screw? That will be the major deciding factor as to whether we need to custom make this or whether you can purchase these components as a standard order.

A quick learner from Brooklyn, NY says:
Hi yes the balances install at the top with some kind of hook or screw and the balance itself slides up and down with the sash.

Would you kindly specify whether it uses a hook or screw? It can't use both, and the distinction is very important.

A quick learner from Brooklyn, NY says:
I believe it's a hook. It's hard to say because the strings over laps the top edge of the window and I'm guessing it hooks up inside the jamb.

If you have hooks, then that means these balances will have to be a custom order. Custom balances are made here in our shop before they ship out and are therefore non-refundable. What I will do now is email you a purchase link and price quote for 2, which is our minimum quantity. 

The basic configuration of this balance is going to be our 29" long Series 795 with a 29D stamp option. We will also swap the bottom shoe out for our 15-224 inverted link and the screw clip for our 15-198 hook. You should review this configuration to verify. 

I am very confident that this configuration will work for you, but you should be 100% sure that your balances install at the top using a hook. Like I said before, these are non-refundable. We can only make these according to the specifications you give us, so you have to be sure they're accurate.

If you wanted to change the quantity to anything other than just 2 balances, please let me know. I would be happy to change that count to anything you need, it's just something that we have to pre-set ahead of time for you.
