Hollow Core Door Damage

Page 2 of 2  


You're right, to be very specific hollow core doors have something closer to a thin piece of MDF where masonite is closer to an HDF. But both are basically the same material, one is compressed a bit more. At this thickness it doesn't matter much.

Or they can - and often do - have skins of plywood. Generally, about 1/8" luan. In fact, you can goto HD/Lowes and purchase such skins should youwant to make your own doors (or for any other purpose).
Some hollow doors use 1/4" hardwood plywood.

Only the flat ones. The ones with faux raised panels and grain are all mdf.

IMO and IME hollow doors have certain merits over solid core doors; mainly, they are a fraction of the weight which means they don't try to pull off the jamb/studs to which they are afixed.

I'm with dadiOH on this one, there are a lot of worse things than hollow core interior doors.
