cement porch help

the front cement porch ( 10 x 18 ) is slowly leaning away from the house. I need to shore it up and secure it from moving any further as it is dragging an attached roof with it. Help.

A mess!!

Mudjacking MIGHT be one solution. Call a contractor who DOES mudjacking. (Not just a concrete contractor, a mudjacker!!)

Obviously, the slab was not designed to support the weight of the roof. It should have had a proper footing.

It's not anything that you, as a DIY'er, are going to be able to fix properly.
