Rod Pocket Lined Door Panels - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. It was the first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a torch 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 perfectly but when you went to open it. The issue turned out to function as the path was missing a screw in the very back so when the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway. There was not any way since it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to reach the screw.
It was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and a few paint to help make the repair complete. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also cause the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly.
