For siding, soffits, it’s a delight to work with and still recommend predrilling at the ends but not necessary, the ends don’t split and there is very little job site breakage.  Nailing… with an Air Gun is excellent, builders are amazed at the ease. An excellent paint holding fibers; allowing oil-based stain or paint to be applied and readily absorbed. Perhaps, best of all, is the ease and ability to refinish or even change the color.
