Types Of Pocket Door Tracks - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing at a bizarre angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I began looking within the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was noticeable.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There is no strategy to reach the screw since it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing.
This was the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and some paint to make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
