Pocket Closet Door Ideas - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. It was the first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and began looking within the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.

The problem turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the course was missing a screw in the back. There is no way as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to attain the screw.


It was the only real thing I would require a simple wall patch and really could think of and some paint to make the repair whole. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.

Some pocket door issues are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues falling and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time also can make the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly.
