Car Door Storage Pockets - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely lost. I started looking within the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was evident.
As the pocket door was slipping shut it would work perfectly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half. There was not any method to achieve the screw since it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
As a way to repair the pocket door trouble, I was really going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only real thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the depth 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 periods of time.
