Small Space Pocket Door - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I began looking within the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was obvious.
There is not any way as it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to reach the screw.
As a way to repair the pocket door issue, I had been going to need to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and a few paint to really make the repair complete. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to fix 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 depth of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time.
