Pocket Slider Patio Doors - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was evident.
The problem turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There is not any solution as it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to attain the screw.
In order to repair the pocket door problem, I was going to need to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to really make the repair whole. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix 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 falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
