deteriorating porch

Not quite sure how to tackle my front porch. I have a craftsmen style house and the front porch is sinking. The brick pillars are straight but the part that connects to the roof are leaning in. Any suggestions?

Pictures will help, and you can upload them to a host like photobucket.com and then give us the link.

However without seeing what you got, I can tell you that anything sinking is bad news that could be the result of a few factors. Usually a sinking problem should not be ignored.

In the meantime, call some framers/general contractors for evaluation.
