Pocket Door Trim Ideas - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was definitely confused. I got a flashlight and began looking within the pocket door frame. I had a hard time finding the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was skidding closed it works perfectly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back into the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the course was missing a screw in the rear that was very. There clearly was not any method since it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to reach the screw.
To be able to repair the pocket door difficulty, I was really going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only thing I really could think of and would require a simple wall patch and a few paint to make the repair complete. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time may also cause the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
