Frame Pocket Door Wall - Just a couple months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was evident.
The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the very back. There clearly was no way to reach the screw since it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
As a way to repair the pocket door trouble, I had been going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only real thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and really could think of plus some paint to make the repair complete. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair 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 appeared to have issues falling and eventually are left closed, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time can also cause the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
