About Us

We are known for Service, Service, and Service! Plus the Owner Bob Duke will work with clients with plenty of flexibility. Floor Magic offers a no-cost Lifetime Warranty on all our workmanship!

Both Showrooms (Rockport and Damariscotta) are very clean, organized, and staffed with folks that can't wait to serve the next person that enters " that" door. Our clients feel welcome, well served, and that they received a good value.

Our History:

Floor Magic was founded in 1980 by Steve Frey on Newcastle. After a few years Floor Magic was sold to Ralph and Susan Pilsbury and within a few years moved Floor Magic to it's present site at 45 Biscay Road in Damariscotta. In 2005 the Pilsburys sold Floor Magic to Bob and Doreen Duke of Rockport.

Bob, who acts as its General Manager, went about upgrading the showroom, adding new innovative products, not found in the region and sustainable products like Real Linoleum, Cork, and Bamboo Flooring. In 2007 the Dukes expanded by opening a second showroom in Rockport, where the Dukes live. In 2008 the Dukes purchased the property it's Damariscotta Showroom operates on and built a warehouse adjacent to it. Growth has perpetuated the need to move its Rockport location to a larger space on Route 90, near other home furnishing retailers.

Meet the Team

Bob Duke
Owner

Bob was born in Melrose Massachusetts and soon afterward the Duke family moved to Rockport Maine. Bob and his two brothers attended local schools and very much enjoyed living in a small town. Bob spent countless hours with friends on and around Rockport Harbor. As he was finishing high school and working full-time at the Camden IGA Foodliner Bob found himself at a crossroad; whether to go to college or possibly make a career in the grocery business. Trusting his gut, Bob stayed in the business he already enjoyed and stayed there for fifteen years, working his way up to managing two grocery stores in Rockland and Camden.

Feeling the need to move on Bob moved to a new position as Multi-Store Supervisor for Maritime Energy/Maritime Farms Store. After a few years, Bob was promoted to Operations Manager, assuming the Senior Management Position overseeing the stores, retail, and wholesale fuel operations. Bob always had a yearning to own his own business so in 2005 Bob and his wife Doreen purchased Floor Magic from Ralph and Susan Pilsbury, which at that time had just the Damariscotta Showroom. In 2007 Bob added a showroom in Rockport and in 2008 purchased the Damariscotta property and built an adjacent warehouse for both operations.

Personally Bob married Doreen Hall soon after high school and have raised two children; Jonathan (who is married to Joanna and has two boys; Carter and Will) and Gabrielle. Bob and Doreen are excited recently as they have built a new home, still in Rockport. Recreationally Bob enjoys golf, boating, home improvement projects, and serving the public in many roles over the last thirty years. Fireman, Town Budget Committeeperson, Town Selectperson, Town Moderator, County Budget Committeeperson, County Commissioner, and School Board Person are just some of the positions held.

Philosophically, Bob believes that you need to work hard every day, treat everyone he has contact with well and their day a little bit better. Bob loves owning Floor Magic and working directly with as many client as he can in improving their homes.
