Split Jamb Pocket Door - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a weird angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was clear.
The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway and the track was missing a screw in the back that was very. There is no strategy to attain the screw because it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
This was the only thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and a few paint to really make the repair whole. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
