Frosted Glass Panel Pocket Doors - Just a couple months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a bizarre angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this sort of situation and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had difficulty discovering the issue but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There clearly was not any way because it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to achieve the screw.
To be able to fix the pocket door problem, I had been going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch plus some paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
