Pocket Door Adjust Height - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a bizarre angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely confused. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was apparent.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half, as the pocket door was sliding shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. The trouble 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 door and the course was missing a screw in the back. There is not any strategy to achieve the screw because it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
In order to fix the pocket door trouble, I was really going to need to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and could think of plus some paint to make the repair whole. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to correct the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
