Pocket Doors Interior Design - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. This is the first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely confused. I began looking within the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time finding the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
The problem turned out to be the course was missing a screw in the very rear so when the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door. There is no solution because it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to achieve the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door problem, 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 only thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch and 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 in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier 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 in fact add to the depth of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
