Pocket Door Bumper Hardware - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I began looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was evident.
The issue turned out to be as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the back that was very. There is no solution since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to reach the screw.
It was the only thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and a few 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 from the pocket door track. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time can also cause the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
