Masonite Pocket Door Hardware - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a weird angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this type of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. 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, as the pocket door was sliding shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. There clearly was not any solution to achieve the screw since it absolutely was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
As a way to correct the pocket door trouble, I was going to have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems 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 doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time.
