Hello. Actually, I’m not sure, but it seems to me that it’s possible. You can turn to professionals who will help you in this matter. When I needed vinyl siding San Francisco, I remember that they helped me with everything and told me a lot, so I managed not to bother about it all. Everything was done for me and this is a great service.

We recommend that the entire sash be replaced when roll-form aluminum cladding has been damaged by hail. The frame cladding cannot be replaced, however. If the damage is significant enough, the entire unit should be replaced, which requires siding to be removed from around the window or door unit. This would allow the damaged unit to be removed and a new unit installed. Or, repair cladding like a dent in a car. You will need masking tape, #280 grit sandpaper, a sanding block, quality auto dent filler (Bondo), spray can of auto primer, tack cloth and spray can of matching color paint. Mask off the perimeter of the entire cladding piece which requires repair. Sand off the dented area. Use auto filler to fill in the dent and allow to dry following the instructions on the label. When dry, sand off the area with the sand block to obtain a level surface. Additional coats of dent filler may be required for a smooth surface. After the surface is sanded smooth, spray auto primer paint over fill
