Pocket Sliding Doors Glass - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This was the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely lost. I got a torch and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was sliding shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. The trouble turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There was no approach since it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I would have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and a few paint to make the repair complete. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used 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 periods of time can also cause the door to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
