Interior Pocket Door Sizes - Just a couple months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a strange angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this kind of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had difficulty finding the problem but when I did it was apparent.
There was no solution to attain the screw as it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself.
This is the only real thing I would require a simple wall patch and could think of and some paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door path. Then I use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have difficulties falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time also can cause the door to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
