Not sure if picture posted okay, but is this acceptable? The bottom of the vinyl siding is under mulch.

Your pictures were probably too large to download properly. Try resizing them down a bit.

I am absolutely amazed sometimes by how much thought goes into doing things wrong

It’s never a good thiong to have the siding buried under 8" of termite munch’in mulch. Try " The inspector noted that portions of the siding are too close to (buried under) ground level, making them subject to decay or insect infestation. All siding should be a minimum of eight inches above ground level."

Shawn,


When I see situations such as this, I always recommend an invasive inspection of this area (if you can't get to the sill area). When I see dirt up against the house, 75% of the time I find termite activity or rotted sills.
