Pocket Glass Patio Doors - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a bizarre angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this type of scenario and was definitely lost. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was sliding closed it would work flawlessly 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 into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway and the path was missing a screw in the back that was very. There is not any way since it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to reach the screw.
In order to fix the pocket door problem, I was going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I would require a simple wall patch and really could think of and some paint to help make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door path. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time may also cause the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
