Personally, I would remove the electrical service, that thing is a mess. Then repair the siding and holes in the building. Then install a new service and mast.

That was a bad siding job. I usually unbolt the weatherhead and conduit so I can slide trim stock behind. Then install the vinyl siding J channel.

Tolyn Ironhando thank you for your advice. What kind of money are we talking to get the work you mentioned done approximately?

It varies greatly depending on your area and everything involved. You are in Canada so I couldn't even venture a guess. If you DIY it you are looking at about $600 in the material. If that is not an option I recommend getting some local electrical contractors (3) to give you some prices.
