Help with window repair?

window lock closeupChristina asks via Facebook:

i'm trying to find someone who does window repairs in Schenectady. There seem to be plenty of companies willing to replace your windows - but none that I can find that do repairs. Anyone know of any awesome handyman service or window repair specialist they are willing to recommend? We have some casement windows that need repair - leaking water (in this torrential downpour rain we've been having). Thanks.

We've had a question before about fixing really old windows -- like, almost a century old. But Christina's question is a bit different. And it'd be great to help her find a way to fix rather than replace.

Have some insight? Please share!

He has done good work for my clients and at my office.

It would help to know what material the windows are. I know a few people that repair historic wood windows (specifically Albany Window Restoration, and Contractor's Millwork), but vinyl windows are essentially designed to be replaced every 15-20 years. I assume aluminum windows can be repaired, but I don't know anyone that deals with them.

Thanks for the response. Turns out it is not a window problem, it's a roof problem.
