This is a common issue on the civics. When one or both of the fron windows bind, it usually indicates a bad window regulator, and the glass channel is not seated correctly in the window channel. The fix is to replace the window regulator and reinstall the glass run channel.
If you have a 2 door, then the part for the left door should be around $185 plus 0.6 of one hours mtc to replace it. If the shop rate is $90, then labor should be around $55. So, I would say at the least your repair bill should run around $240. Of course that can go up if other items are damaged.
It may not be the best of news for you, but atleast you should have an idea of what to expect.
