Outdoor Glass Pocket Doors - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing in a bizarre angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly confused. I got a flashlight and started looking inside the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the problem but when I did it was evident.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was skidding shut it works flawlessly but when you went to open it. There clearly was not any way to attain the screw since it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
This was the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door path. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues falling and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
