Charles P. Rogers

Hi buddercup,

Thanks for taking the time to share your comments and feedback about Charles P. Rogers … I appreciate it.

Just for the sake of clarity … Capitol Foam is a foam fabricator and not a foam manufacturer so they could be getting their foam from any of the many foam manufacturers in the US (including Carpenter or Hickory) and then they would be the ones that then cut it to size. I should also mention that there are many foam manufacturers in the US that make very high quality foams besides Carpenter and Hickory and for anyone to suggest that there are only two is both misleading and inaccurate.

It’s possible that the St Regis foundation isn’t suitable for their Powercore mattresses for some reason or wouldn’t meet their warranty criteria for that specific mattress but they should at least be able to explain the difference between them and why they wouldn’t sell you the lower cost foundation because you are asking a legitimate question.

I’m not sure which mattress you were looking at but if you do decide to include them as an option then I would make sure that you are able to find out the specifics of all the materials and layers inside the mattress you are considering so you can confirm that there aren’t any lower quality materials or “weak links” in the mattress.

I would also keep in mind that if you aren’t local to them and can’t test a mattress in person then the exchange and/or return policy and any costs involved may become a more important part of the “value” of a mattress purchase just in case the choice you make doesn’t turn out to be as good a “match” for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) as you hoped for. There is more about the most important parts of the “value” of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses.

There is one pocket coil mattress listed on their site (the Dream Dimensions) but the rest are either offset coils or foam mattresses (latex or memory foam). You can see some comments about Restopedic in this topic and this topic and this topic and a forum search on Restopedic (you can just click the link) will bring up more comments and feedback about them as well… They tend to use higher quality materials than most of their competitors in similar budget ranges and they certainly make some very high quality/value mattresses and most importantly of all they are transparent about the type and quality of the materials and components they use in their mattresses.
You may have seen this already but just in case you haven’t … some of the other options or possibilities that may also be well worth considering if you are in the Connecticut area (subject to the quality/value guidelines I linked earlier) are listed in post #2 here.

I’m looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding and of course any comments or questions you may have along the way.
