Framing Wall For Pocket Door - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
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 works flawlessly but when you went to open it. The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There is not any strategy because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself to achieve the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door trouble, I would have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch and some paint to make the repair whole. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time also can make the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
