Shingle siding problem

Hey guys, this is my next door neighbors home. In addition to noticing the poor condition of her siding I noticed this hole. It is about 20 feet up on the house roughly 3 feet below the low sloping roof. I snapped these photos (the close up is taken from the roof above) and wanted to hear anyone’s thoughts as to what this say’s about how this siding was installed. This is the worst spot but there are smaller holes continuing along the siding. Thanks much.


My thoughts… poor installation…repair by qualified contractor, as necessary.
