Pocket Door Size Standards - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a weird angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and began looking in the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was sliding closed 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. There clearly was no method since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
As a way to repair the pocket door issue, I was really going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to help make the repair whole. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish 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 closed, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time also can make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
