Pocket Door Kit 2x4 Wall - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a weird angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this type of scenario and was definitely lost. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was clear.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was skidding shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. There is not any method to attain the screw because it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
As a way to fix the pocket door trouble, I was really going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I really could think of and would require a simple wall patch plus some paint to make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time also can cause the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly.
