Images Of Glass Pocket Doors - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. The issue turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the path was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There clearly was not any solution to achieve the screw as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing.
It was the only thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and really could think of plus some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
