sinking concrete porch
, is there any way it can be fix.. My porch has 3 brick pillars. Our right corner ( if looking at the house from the front). Is sinking. What I see is at the top of the pillar it has moved about 2" out. This is setting on a part of the concrete porch were there is a cut thur it the slab of concrete is about 2' wide and 6'to 7' deep.. So that makes the pillar sitting on the front corner of the 2' wide part..forgot to tell you. The porch has brick walls about 2' or so high that makes the walls around the porch.. With that side that means the pillar is sitting on top of that wall.. So the brick has cracked at the mortar and pulling away with the pillar.. So if you can Help.. Thank you so much..

You need to post some pictures and that may make it more clear what your situation is. Impossible to understand from your description alone. Also post your location, that can help narrow down soil problems.
