Frosted Bathroom Pocket Door - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This was the first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was sliding shut it works 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 door and the path was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There is not any strategy to attain the screw because it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing.
In order to repair the pocket door issue, I would have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and a few paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
