Linnea Privacy Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This is the first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was definitely confused. I got a torch and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time finding the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was skidding shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There clearly was not any approach because it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to achieve the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door problem, I had been going to have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the top right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple plus some paint to make the repair whole. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to correct the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, 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 keeping it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
