Double Pocket Door With Frosted Glass - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a bizarre angle. It was the first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely lost. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. There clearly was no strategy as it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing to attain the screw.
In order to repair the pocket door issue, I was 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 sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of plus some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time may also make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly.
