Anderson Sliding Pocket Doors - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was sliding shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There is no strategy because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to achieve the screw.
To be able to fix the pocket door issue, I was going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of plus some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time also can make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
