Outside Mount Pocket Doors - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was evident.
As the pocket door was skidding closed it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There was no approach since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to reach the screw.
To be able to repair the pocket door trouble, I had been going to have 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 thing I would require a simple wall patch and really could think of and some paint to help make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also cause the door to swell keeping it from opening properly.
