Make A Pocket Door Frame - Just a couple months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a strange angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had difficulty 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 shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There was not any way since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing to attain the screw.


To be able to repair the pocket door trouble, I would need to remove a good 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 wall patch that is simple and really could think of plus some paint to help 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 easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
