Is this masonite siding?

Going to do some work on my house and I am trying to figure out if this is Masonite soding or T1-11 or something else. Some of the panels are rotting at the bottom and I need to fix or replace.

Cant tell... it kind of looks like fiber cement. (Sierra 8) How many inches between the groove pattern? And how thick is it? Fiber cement will be 3/8" or just under.

It is original. I think the house was built in 1992 or 1993. This is the original siding.

They were phasing out masonite siding around that time. A pic showing the damage might be helpful.

I'll take photos when its daylight. On masonite panels, how do you remove them from the home without destroying it? It was suggested that I take a panel off to see if there was a stamp.

No need to see a stamp. If you pull it off, you'll destroy it and have to replace it. Repairing damage to the bottom could be simple, so we'll wait on the pictures. We can tell what it is by looking at the damage.

Im working late hours so I leave before the sun comes up and after it sets at night. I need the stamp so I can file a warranty claim and get new materials.

I went to a local lumber yard today and located Reverse
Board & Batten Masonite. This stuff was made by LP but is exactly like what I have in all details. Guy at the counter says it comes up as Masonite Siding in his computer. They apparently don't sell much of it.

Dont waste your time trying to get a warranty claim. Thats laughable. Any of the publicized class action suits were settled years ago so you missed the boat.
