White Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple of months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was obvious.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was slipping closed it works perfectly but when you went to open it. The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the course was missing a screw in the back that was very. There was no method to achieve the screw since it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
In order to fix the pocket door difficulty, I would need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I really could think of and would require an easy wall patch and a few paint to really make the repair whole. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
