Sinking garage floor

Have a ranch house with an attached two car garage. The garage floor is sinking on the front far corner. I remove some dirt from the side of the garage and the garage floor is a slab. Because the garage is attached to the house it is affecting the entire structure especially on the side of the house where the garage is attached, doors out of alignment, and when I look at the front of the house you can visibly see how the roof line is sagging with the floor. The rest of the house is not built on a slab, it has a concrete block foundation with a basement. I have contacted a mud jacking company and they will be out next week to have a look. Thought some of you may have some useful advice.

Thanks

Mac

Mudjacking may level the garage slab floor, but probably will not correct the damage done to the house.

You really should get an engineer to look at the whole problems.
