No More Headaches
Avoiding Costly Repairs with Pocket Doors
Pocket doors often feel like one of those necessary evils in homes. They are convenient and useful in theory but often get a bad rap. Mainly because homeowners encounter failures with them, resulting in costly repairs. Builder Matt Risinger mentions, “common failures include doors falling of the track, plastic rollers that crack or door tracks that aren’t perfectly level. Even the screws used in the roller carriages will back out over time because of constant use.” The worst part is that when these systems fail or screws need to be tightened, it requires breaking into the wall to to do so.
