Framing For A Double Pocket Door - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a weird angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this sort of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time finding the issue but when I did it was evident.

There is no approach to achieve the screw as it was at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.

In order to fix the pocket door issue, I was really going to need to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall in the top right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only thing I could think of and would require an easy wall patch plus some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door track. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.

Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have issues falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time may also make the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly.
