What damages can I sue for in a constructive eviction ?
I had my headphones on in my bedroom and when I walked out to go use the restroom there were two men in my living room, one was Maintenece and the other was from a window place. Maintenece said I knocked but you didn’t answer so I went to the office to get the key. Because they needed measurements to a window that had been cracked since I moved in and this was on my move in checklist. No notice was given and I’m sure it wasn’t the first time, just the first time I was actually home but didn’t hear anything because of my headphones. This is a privacy issue.

That is not a constructive eviction. If the lease allows them to enter to do maintenance without notice, they can do so. Moreover, even if nothing is provided in the lease, the owner always has a right to enter without notice for emergency repair issues.
Based on your limited facts, you don't have a viable claim for damages. If you want to sue, then you are free to spend that time and money but you may get nothing.
