Because solid core interior doors are dense, there also tends to be far less noise transmission over other material options, making them an excellent option for doorways or rooms where you hope to maintain privacy and quiet. Additionally, many homeowners also favor the improved safety and fire rating of solid core interior doors over their hollow core counterparts.

    General Costs of Solid Core Interior Doors

Solid core interior doors fall between solid wood doors and hollow core doors on the cost spectrum. Prices usually start between $120 and $200 for a standard door, although solid core interior doors with high-grade finishes or other hardware can cost as much as $325 or more. Additionally, to have the door hung by a professional, costs generally run between $150 to $200 for installation.

    Bottom Line: More Quality for a Still Reasonable Price
