Blum Pocket Door Slides - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. This is the first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the problem 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 skidding shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. The difficulty 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 back. There is no strategy as it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing to reach the screw.

This is the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and some paint to really make the repair complete. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.

Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time may also make the door to swell keeping it from opening properly.
