replacing window pain: estimate charges
I want to estimate charges for replacing a window pane. It's a 24x24 inch pane in a sliding aluminum frame window.

This relates to a dispute with my landlord about the security deposit. I broke a window. He withheld $500 and claimed a large number of other damages and replacement costs. The problem is that he doesn't understand the concept of normal wear and tear, so almost everything he listed was not valid. So I asked him what the cost of the window was, as a separate item, and he did not know----he hired a handyman to do many things at once, and was presented with a single bill. He has no receipts for any items, and no itemized list of labor charges.

We will probably go to court, and in case the judge attempts to estimate charges in lieu of receipts, I want to know what the window replacement might be.

Anyone who knows, if you could separate materials cost and labor hours. In other words
materials = $30
hours = 1.5
He hired cheap labor so this is probably less expensive than it would usually be.

This site is for DIY, not preparing a court case
Repalacing a window can cost $500 alone in some cases
