Metal Frame Pocket Doors - Just a couple months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. This was the first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was definitely confused. I started looking in the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty discovering the issue but when I did it was clear.
As the pocket door was skidding closed it works perfectly but when you went to open it the base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam. The trouble turned out to be the track was missing a screw in the rear so that as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway. There is no strategy because it absolutely was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to attain the screw.
This was the only real thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of and a few paint to really make the repair whole. 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 correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have troubles sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time may also cause the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
