That last pic is more disturbing than the rest IMO. I can't imagine hat the cedar shakes (?) look like under the concrete. I'm not so sure that the flashing in place will really keep water out of there as well.

I don't think Tom Strubble would do something like that........

* On edit, I see now where you list the sidign as vinyl, not actual cedar shakes. Either way, I think wate could migrate under the aluminum flashing fairly easily.

They were trying to solve a problem but this solution is, well, wrong. But it may still work for the moment - I think you have bigger fish to fry for now.

I think OP is getting more worked up than need be from what I see.

GBR laid out the simple DIY fix to the framing concerns. With all materials in hand there’s only a few hours of work there.

DH pointed out that he sees this slop all the time but yet the “Civil Engineer” sees no structural issues.

You don’t know where that drain is running to but I’m sure it’s away from the house, would be nice to know where it ends up though.

It looks to me that the plastic siding guys made an attempt to keep water away from the house. That white stripe dieing into the drain looks like coil stock that could be bent over a curb in the concrete or treated wood gooped to the slab and behind the felt and up the wall, but it looks like they thought about it.
