Pocket Door Trim Kit - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a peculiar angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was definitely confused. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was apparent.
As the pocket door was skidding shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the back. There clearly was no strategy to reach the screw since it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I was really going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the sole thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and could think of plus some paint to make the repair complete. 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 more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also make the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
