Hidden Pocket Sliding Doors - Just a few months back I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I began looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was clear.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam as the pocket door was sliding closed it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There is no approach since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself, to attain the screw.
In order to correct the pocket door difficulty, I would have to remove a great sized area of the plastered wall in the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. It was the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair complete. Then I use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time can also cause the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
