Decorative Glass Pocket Doors - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting in a bizarre angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was definitely lost. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had difficulty discovering the problem but when I did it was apparent.
As the pocket door was sliding closed it works flawlessly but when you went to open it the bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. The issue turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the path was missing a screw in the rear. There is not any way since it had been at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to achieve the screw.
This is the sole thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and really could think of and a few paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. Then I 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 correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties falling and eventually are left closed, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time can also make the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
