Interior Frosted Glass Pocket Doors - Just a couple of months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this type of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a torch and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half as the pocket door was slipping shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There was no solution to reach the screw since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing.
In order to correct the pocket door issue, I was really going to have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the sole thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch plus some paint to help 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. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues 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 periods of time may also cause the door to swell keeping it from opening properly.
