White Panel Pocket Door - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time finding the problem but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was sliding shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. The trouble turned out to be the track was missing a screw in the rear so that as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway. There is no strategy as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to attain the screw.
This is the sole thing I would require a simple wall patch and really could think of and a few paint to really make the repair whole. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix 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 appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
