My new concrete porch is cracking! Help!

My porch was poured and I’ve got cracks in my concrete. I’m worried that my porch is going to start chunking out or get ruined. Not sure what to do about these cracks!!

    How recently was this poured and finished? What was the temperature at the time? Did you keep wet during the curing process? I would call your concrete contractor back . . . Let them repair for free for you.

    I agree with Naomie, if it hasn't been that long since it was poured, get back with the contractor that did the job and see if there is anything that can be done with the cracks.

    I agree with Naomie. Terrible job. I assume the base for the concrete was not properly prepared. It's settling, cracking, and only can get worse. There should be some kind of warranty on the workmanship.

    There are a number of reasons or way the job could have gone wrong when poured-https://www.concretenetwork.com/concrete/concrete_cracks/preventing_concrete_cracks.htm
    I would definitely call the contractor back if it was a badly done job
