28 Pocket Door Rough Opening - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely lost. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the problem 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 skidding closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There was not any method to reach the screw as it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
This was the only thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of plus some paint to 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. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time can also make the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
