Also question is, are hollow core doors good?
Hollow core doors are a good choice for areas where sound transmission is less important, like a closet or pantry. Solid Core doors are heavier and more resistant to normal wear.
Beside above, can hollow core doors be filled? The inside of the hollow core door is actually filled with a honeycomb or baffle of cardboard that adds rigidity to the thin veneers of the door. This cardboard baffle keeps foam insulation from infiltrating or spreading more than a few inches, making it impossible to easily or cheaply insulate the door.
Similarly one may ask, how do you identify a hollow core door?
Look at the finish on the door. Factories seldom stain hollow-core doors, except for products that have finished, wood-veneer surfaces. If the door is stained, it's more likely to be solid-core than hollow-core, especially if it is heavy. If it's painted, it's probably hollow-core.
