Curved Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a weird angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
As the pocket door was sliding shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. The problem turned out to be as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the track was missing a screw in the back. There clearly was no strategy as it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to achieve the screw.
This was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and a few paint to make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact 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 house over long amounts of time.
