8 Foot Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a torch and began looking within the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue 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 slipping shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. There clearly was no solution since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to achieve the screw.
To be able to correct the pocket door problem, I was 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 real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
