Pocket Doors Exterior Walls - Just a couple of months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The problem turned out to be the track was missing a screw in the rear so that as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door. There was not any method since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing to attain the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door problem, I was going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and a few paint to help make the repair whole. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to correct the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties falling and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time can also cause the door to swell preventing it from opening properly.
