Rustic Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was definitely lost. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble discovering the issue but when I did it was apparent.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was sliding closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There clearly was no way as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing to attain the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door trouble, I was really going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to correct the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact 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.
