Bathroom Pocket Door Styles - Just a couple of months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was definitely confused. I got a torch and started looking within the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The problem 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 rear that was very. There was no strategy to reach the screw because it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
It was the only thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time can also make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly.
