Antique Pocket Door Edge Pull - Just a couple months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this type of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and started looking within the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.

There is not any strategy to reach the screw since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing.

As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I had been going to need to remove a great 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 an easy wall patch and really could think of plus some paint to really make the repair whole. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.


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