Hardware For Double Pocket Doors - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had difficulty finding the issue but when I did it was apparent.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was sliding shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it. The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There was not any solution since it was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself, to reach the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I would need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties 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 door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
