Unique Pocket Door Pulls - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a strange angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble finding the problem but when I did it was clear.
The issue turned out to be as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the back that was very. There was not any way as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing to achieve the screw.
In order to repair the pocket door issue, I was going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the sole thing I would require an easy wall patch and could think of plus some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact 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 amounts of time.
