Eclisse Glass Pocket Sliding Doors - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a weird angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was evident.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half, as the pocket door was slipping closed it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it. The issue turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway and the track was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There was no approach as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to attain the screw.
This was the only thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and a few paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles falling and eventually are left closed, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually 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 keeping it from opening properly.
