I need to replace the wood frame around windows in my home

We have three windows that the rain is coming through because the wood is rotten and old from previous rain

Here are several previous similar questions with answers FYI - but pay attention to bid costs versus replacement costs, because basically if it comes to taking the window out to repair it (as opposed to just removing some brickmold or sill without removing the entire window frame) it is commonly cheaper to replace the entire window unless quite large.

[Some windows come with the frame built to act as the brick mold or outer trim also, so the unit slides into place from the outside and overlaps the surrounding siding area. Others slide in basically flush on both faces, and get interior trim on the inside, and "brick mold" or an exterior trim on the outside, covering the face of the frame. This type can normally have the exterior trim and sometimes sill removed without messing with the window/frame at all - just remove and replace the exterior trim at ballpark $3-5/LF installed and caulked and painted.]
