I always wondered about this. We had a window show up from the factory with a crack in the window and a hole in the sill. There was a sticker on the window from the factory with a note saying they were aware of the defect. We installed the window it was a 72x54 window holding up the stucco guys and keeping the cold out. They have not showed up yet to fix it so I was curious and then this happened today. I will have to get back to the job site to snap one.

We've broken the j channel on a few windows. I usually just replace them, and my lead broke one on my house this year. I just glued it back on. It's still holding up. I only did that because it was my own house though

You could call around for a fiberglass repair company (I know it's vinyl), or one of the tub repair places. They might do it.

My gut feeling is that you will be replacing that window. Which will be really frustrating since the finished the EIFS around the window for some reason.

They broke it after it was finished. I believe they were coming down the scaffold and hit it with his steel toe boots

It's broken in the first pic and the stucco isn't done yet...??
