Pocket Doors With Glass Interior - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had difficulty discovering the problem but when I did it was evident.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was slipping closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. The trouble turned out to be the course was missing a screw in the very rear so that as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway. There clearly was not any method because it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to attain the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door trouble, I was really going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch and a few paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
