Framing A Pocket Door New Construction - Just a couple of months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the problem 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 slipping shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it. There was no method to reach the screw as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.


As a way to repair 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. It was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and some paint to make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.

Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties falling and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also make the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly.
