That the vinyl siding it too close to grade?

Either the siding was not installed level or the porch itself has settled. Does that gutter discharge right next to the porch?

Vinyl siding, like any siding, needs to be 8" above grade (or is it 6"?) and 4" above flatwork to allow for a proper termite inspection area. (Or is that just a Florida requirement?)
