Why do woodpeckers peck on wood?
They do this because they are looking for food. Termites and other wood dwelling creatures for example are a good source of protein for them. Woodpeckers also raise their young in trees by pecking away a large hole in a tree! Woodpeckers also drum on trees to communicate territoriality.
Just peck it to get to the insects inside the wood.

Tapping on wood is how woodpeckers locate grubs and insects inside the wood. They will do this to just about any exposed wood. If they start boring into the wood after insects, you definitely have insects. Woodpeckers might also peck at the wood if they decide to bore out a nesting cavity.

They can peck out dead wood easily, live wood is more trouble than it's worth, they eat insects that infest sick trees so its natural they would live close by
normally I would say its to announce their territory or to look for a mate, but the soft wood may have insects inside they are wanting to get at, or perhaps there are no dead trees around with soft wood to make a home in.
Call an exterminator to check for insects under your siding. Woodpeckers peck wood to look for food, so if they're pecking, there's likely to be an insect infestation.
