Pocket Doors Installation and Replacement in Arizona

Exterior and Interior Pocket Doors Installation

People often think of interior pocket doors when they hear the terminology, but did you know that exterior pocket doors are available? In various materials and styles, exterior pocket doors help bring nature’s beauty and light indoors while keeping the warm or cold out, depending on the season.

Interior pocket doors are popular for homeowners who want to maximize space and create a seamless transition between rooms. These doors slide into the wall, allowing you to save valuable floor space and create a more open feel in your home. At Greco Roman Windows & Doors, we have decades of experience installing interior and exterior pocket doors and know the proper techniques to maximize your space effectively.

Signs It May Be Time for Pocket Door Replacement

Pocket doors are an excellent addition to any home, providing a sleek, space-saving alternative to traditional hinged doors. But depending on the age of the home, pocket doors can wear out over time and may require replacement.

One common sign indicating the need for pocket door replacement is difficulty opening or closing the door. If you struggle every time you slide a pocket door open or closed, it may be due to worn-out rollers or tracks. Another sign is when the door sticks or falls off its track. This could result from warped or damaged frames that make it difficult for the door to slide smoothly.

Replacing your pocket doors has numerous benefits, including improved energy efficiency and increased home value. Since these doors slide into a wall cavity when opened, they provide better insulation than traditional hinged doors, making them ideal for homes in hot and cold temperatures. In addition, replacing old pocket doors with new ones has significant aesthetic advantages and can instantly transform your living space by giving it a modern look and feel.

A great way to completely change the look and feel of your home without breaking the bank is by transitioning from regular hinged doors to pocket doors. Whether looking to wow visitors by changing your exterior entrances or creating a more open feel between your interior rooms, pocket doors are a great option to go with.

Necessary Preparations

When it comes to installing a pocket door, proper preparation is critical. Several important steps must be taken before the installation can begin.

This includes measuring the width, height, and depth of the doorway or wall cavity where the door will be installed. Choosing the right product is also crucial for a successful installation. This involves selecting a pocket door system appropriate for your needs and matching your desired aesthetic.

The Pocket Door Installation Process

Installing pocket doors can be a great way to save space in your home or office. However, ensuring the installation is done correctly is crucial to guarantee proper insulation, sealing, and finishing. Here’s an overview of how we ensure your pocket door installation is done right:

  • Prepare the opening: The first step in installing a pocket door is to prepare the opening. For interior openings, the wall must be reinforced and prepped for installation. Exterior pocket doors require additional seals and weatherproofing to keep air and moisture from entering the home.
  • Install the frame: Once the opening is prepared, we’ll install the frame for your pocket door. This will involve installing top and bottom tracks and side jambs.
  • Install the door: We’ll install your pocket door after installing the frame. This will involve attaching rollers to the top of the door and inserting them into the top track.
  • Insulate and seal: To ensure that your exterior pocket door is energy-efficient and keeps out drafts, we’ll adequately insulate and seal around the edges of the door and frame. For interior doors, this may involve installing caulking or foam sealants. For exterior pocket doors, we’ll want to use an appropriate weather-stripping material rated for exterior use and able to survive the elements.
  • Finish: Finally, we’ll finish your pocket door installation with trim or molding around both sides of the doorway. We’ll adequately test interior and exterior doors to ensure they are sealed and operating correctly.

Common Issues to Address

Installing a pocket door is a complex process that can present a few challenges.

  • Poor insulation: If your doorway is not insulated correctly, you risk air leakage and drafts. This can be addressed with weatherstripping or other forms of insulation around the edges of the door or frame.
  • Unaligned tracks: If your door is not installed correctly, it can cause the top and bottom tracks can become misaligned. This can be corrected by ensuring the frame is level and securely mounted to the wall.
  • Warping: If exposed to excessive moisture or humidity, pocket doors can start to warp over time. This can be prevented by adequately sealing any exposed surfaces with high-quality paint or sealant.

At Greco Roman, we understand the importance of addressing these common issues before and during installation. That’s why we employ experienced technicians who can spot and address potential problems before they become an issue.

Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Pocket Door in Good Shape

Regular Cleaning

Cleaning and dusting your pocket door should be done at least once every six months.


Lubricating the tracks and rollers of your pocket door can help keep it running smoothly. This should be done every few months to ensure optimal performance.


Inspecting your pocket door for any signs of damage or wear and tear is important. Look for cracks, warping, or any other structural damage before they become larger issues.
One of the best ways to maintain your pocket door is to have it professionally serviced annually. This can help ensure that all components are in good working order and will last for years to come.
