Robert Miller, the Founder and President of UB Hardwoods & Flooring, grew up with construction and an entrepreneurial spirit flowing through his veins. After graduating from high school, he was installing floors determined to start his own company. He soon realized that he wasn’t just in the flooring industry; he was in the service industry. From the day Robert opened his doors, he has been driven by the same core values – honesty, hard work, and perseverance – that were instilled in him as an outstanding member of his community.


Robert’s leadership has led UB Hardwoods to receive Angie’s List Super Service awards and a nomination for the Better Business Bureaus “Torch” Award both in 2015 and 2016. Robert believes that focusing on his team members will grow not only the team, but also the company; this is proven with the 30 percent increase in business every year. Robert and his wife, Sarah, raise three children and enjoy being involved in church and their community. Robert has a relationship with Teen Challenge and Feed My Starving Children, to which he frequently donates flooring products and services to help with their fundraising events.
