Best Locks For Pocket Doors - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the issue but when I did it was obvious.
As the pocket door was skidding closed it would work perfectly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. There is no strategy as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing to achieve the screw.
In order to repair the pocket door difficulty, I would need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I really could think of and would require a straightforward wall patch and some paint to make the repair whole. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
