Perforated leaves are not normal and are probably caused by rose slugs/sawflies. For more information on rose slugs/sawflies and a course of treatment, please visit the following link:

sounds like insect infestation chemical treatments will work or use volk oil to cover the leaves. natural solution may be to get lady bugs in your garden
