Understanding Jeld-Wed Door Core Options
I'm getting ready to replace all the doors in my house, but what I see on Jeld-Wed's website isn't the same data I see at HomeDepot and hoping someone here can help sort it out.
From JW's website, they have the following core options:
Solid Particleboard Core
Solid Mineral Core
They also list a "ProCore" option, but I think that is a filler option for hollow core doors.
HomeDepot, unfortunately, doesn't know the differences. They present the options as: Hollow, ProCore, Custom Carved (better core than ProCore, but he wasn't sure what it was).
We're looking for something that will give us the weight and feel, sound isolation of a wood door, but since we're painting we don't want to spend extra $$$ for wood.
I've heard MDF core doors are the way to go, but I don't see which option above is an MDF door. Also, MDF and Water don't mix. Does that mean I shouldn't install these doors in a bathroom? Or will a good primer and paint seal the door?
