Old Pocket Door Roller Hardware - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and began looking in the pocket door frame. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was obvious.
The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway and the path was missing a screw in the very back. There was no strategy since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to reach the screw.
To be able to correct the pocket door difficulty, I had been going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only real thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and a few paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems falling 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 the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
