Oil Rubbed Bronze Pocket Door Handle - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a strange angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and started looking within the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was evident.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half as the pocket door was skidding shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the path was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There clearly was not any strategy since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to reach the screw.
To be able to correct the pocket door difficulty, I had been going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of plus some paint to make the repair complete. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems falling 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 the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
