42 Pocket Door Frame - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. It was the first time I'd ran into this type of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The trouble 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 track was missing a screw in the back that was very. There clearly was no method to attain the screw as it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
It was the only real thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch and some paint to help make the repair whole. Then I 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 problems are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time can also cause the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
