Possible Roots under Porch foundation.

I just removed some 60 year old Shrubs from the front of my house. There is a lot of roots that have been cleared. The problem is that I have a corner of the porch raised about 4-6 inches due to 4 bushes in that corner. Is there a way to rot out the remaining roots to settle down the corner? or is there a better way?

Thanks
John

Sure there is - it's called digging.

But you have a unique problem. 4-6" rise is a lot. You need a professional contractor to assess your situation.

Without seeing it, I have a feeling that you need a complete job, not just a tiny fix.
