Default Can these wood windows be repaired or replace them?

Hi,

I have these three wood awning windows in the basement. Because the leaked deck(Fixed now) above, the top frames of the window are rotten. Can the windows be repaired or it's more cost efficient to replace them? These windows are only 8 years old and I don't know who made these. Here are the pics of the rotten windows.

First, inside view
2nd, inside close up
3rd, outside view
4th, close up view of rotten wood behind the rubber seal
5th, the whole outside view of the windows

Thank You,
Sufeng

I think it might be worth fixing but I would also want to look at the framing above the window, as the header there is important to the structure of the house.

Ya good place for window if you are a mouse. Pull that stuff out and man up some frame.
