Default T1-11 installed at a 45?

Hey all, first post on this site
I bought a home that was built in 79. The siding appears to be T1-11, but is at a 45 degree angle. It has wood rot and needs replaced. Fortunately,the area that is bad is not too big.
My question is this, A. Might it not be T1-11? When I remove, can I reinstall T1-11 at an angle (45 degree)?

That is just board likely shiplap. I would find something else if you really like the angle. You would have lot's of waste out of sheet stock, if you could make it fit at all It would have top be less the 4 ft wide.

The photo appears to be a small panel. Is the whole house sided that way? You can determine if it is a composite or real wood by probing for grain.

I'd agree with Neal, it looks like wood shiplap and you can see the knots in parts of it. If that is the only panel with the siding on the 45 I'd probably opt to replace it with something from the cement fiber family and not go on the 45. That was kind of the all the rage back in the late 1970's and 1980's. Not so much anymore.

Yup, that is plain boarding, not T-111. I also agree in using either a fiber cement or PVC product to replace it.
