Sliding Door Repair
It's What We Do

Stop fighting your sliding doors!

Pocket Door SpecialistA specialist is experienced in repairs and installations doors that can be surprisingly complex. Pocket doors, popular decades ago, became rarer in new construction during the 1960s.

Finding a craftsman to repair a pocket door on an older home, or install one in new construction, became difficult.

Today, pocket doors are making a comeback and our specialists are in demand.  Homeowners appreciate the space-saving aspects of doors that slide into the wall. Pocket doors are increasingly being used for a variety of rooms – home offices, laundry or utility rooms, closets, or bathrooms.

In the Bay Area, vintage pocket doors in homes built in the early 20th century require knowledge of older hardware systems. Walls that have shifted with age and become uneven can make operating once-grand pocket doors a frustrating experience. Fixing them requires an especially deft touch.

Because practical pocket doors are often heavily used, they require periodic maintenance or replacement. For the do-it-yourselfer, some repairs can be tough. Replacing a pocket door without damaging the wall is a skill that only comes with practice.

The pocket door specialist at A-1 On Track has tools that facilitate quick repairs. A borescope is particularly handy for visual inspections of a door inside the wall. We also use special techniques to fix anything related to pocket doors, from damaged tracks to malfunctioning locks to broken pulls.

It’s common for homeowners who try to repair pocket doors to make matters worse. If your pocket door doesn’t function the way it should, it may be better to leave the job to a professional.
