Bathroom Pocket Door Soundproof - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. This was the first time I had ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was apparent.
As the pocket door was skidding closed it would work 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. There clearly was no way as it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to attain the screw.
This was the only real thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch and some paint to really make the repair whole. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some fast setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time also can make the door to swell preventing it from opening properly.
