This is a nice example of what happens when a siding contractor gets all his experience doing manufactured housing, i.e. trailers. Mobile home don't have an electric service on the outside when they leave the factory so they don't know what to do with it. The barn red goes
well with the pale yellow.

I think the distortion at the corner of the house was the string of Christmas lights that hung down from the service attachment.

This is another one by the same guy. The owner & the POCO were worried when the attachment knob pulled out, that the next thing to happen would be the cable pulling the siding off.

The city issues permits for siding ("Why do I need that ?") but, we never get called to inspect the job, unless something goes wrong.

Some people think that the SE cable on the side of the house is unsightly. The proper response is to replace it with an underground service. Expensive though....

With all those iceagles on the gutter, looks like the roof needs better insulation inside.

Why isn't the service cable inside a conduit on the wall? They have to be here.

Both the pictures were existing services that had siding installed over them. the installer just didn't know that the cable can be loosened and the siding slide behind it. But then they never refasten the cable.

If it was easy, anyone could do it.
