Leave gap in shingles to avoid bulging

Q. My neighbor had wood shingles installed on one large wall and then painted. I can see the wall from my house, and it is handsome.. But it was not long before the shingles bulged, buckled and bowed out in several places. What happened, and how can she fix them to make them flat again?
