Wood Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a bizarre angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was definitely lost. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty discovering the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was skidding closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There was not any strategy as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to reach the screw.
In order to fix the pocket door problem, I had been going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only real thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch plus some paint to help make the repair whole. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to correct the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time also can cause the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
