Solid-core doors are essentially filled with wood fiber or cork-wood that help muffle sounds and withstand extreme weather. These doors offer better insulation against heat loss. Also, they are denser and eventually last longer than hollow-core doors.
If you are replacing existing door handles, then ensure the new hardware has the same drill centers as the previous model. Else, you will be left with extra drill holes that will have to be covered separately.
Composite doors are made from synthetic material that has the look and feel of a wooden door. These doors are made from different materials molded together that helps make them strong and durable. The doors have reinforced skin that gives them the look of grain finish. The skin also provides strength to the door and it cannot be opened by force or strong kicks. Composite doors do not need painting or varnishing as they do not fade with time. The core of these doors is filled with foam that helps them provide 6 times better insulation than wooden doors. Also, these doors do not twist, warp, crack or swell like wooden doors do. All these attractive and useful features are available at a much affordable price than the expensive wooden doors. They prove to be good entry doors, back doors and front doors for homes.
Installing a pre-hung door is not as easy as it may seem. Weather proofing, leveling, and insulation are some of the core concerns that affect the overall look of the door. That said, unless you are an expert, it is recommended that you take the help of a professional or ask the local home center for a referral while installing the pre-hung door.
