Antique Pocket Door Hanging Hardware - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was clear.
The problem turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the path was missing a screw in the back. There was not any approach to attain the screw as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
To be able to fix the pocket door problem, I was really going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and some paint to make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
