Design Sliding Pocket Doors - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a weird angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was obvious.
As the pocket door was sliding closed it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. The problem turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the back that was very. There is no strategy because it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to attain the screw.
It was the only real thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and could think of and a few paint to really make the repair complete. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to correct the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues falling and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
