This is surely a problem solved! And vinyl siding "repair."
Over time the soil has settled. That has pulled down the underground conduit housing the electrical service lines to this house. In turn, this pulled down the electric meter where it attaches to the house.
Well, certainly, as it all settles, a gap forms. Maybe gaps!
Gaps aren't good! Even this homeowner knows that!
What to do?
Caulking! Lots of caulking! Fill, fill, fill!
What if caulking isn't enough? There is exposed wood there after all. Maybe a little additional help?
Well, how about a little vinyl siding roof over it?
Yeah, that's it!
A problem solved! And vinyl siding "repair."
How could anyone argue with that?
Besides, it's gorgeous!
The siding is almost the same color as the original.
And who wouldn't want a little roof over the box, just to be sure that things stay dry?
Wind? No problem! It flaps! It's loose, so any high wind won't break it!
My recommendation: you can't see enough to know that the ingenuity of people will never cease. In the famous words of Julius Ceasar, "Veni, vidi, vici!" I came, I saw, I conquered! We'll go with that.
