Antique Brass Pocket Door Hardware - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a weird angle. It was the first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the very rear. There clearly was not any strategy since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to achieve the screw.
It was the sole thing I would require a straightforward wall patch and could think of and some paint to really make the repair complete. 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 correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
