About Us

Since our founding in 1985, we have recognized that a home is not only a family's most significant investment, but it is also the center of family life, a source of pride, and a place where families entertain and retreat to. At Sunwood we pride ourselves on giving our customers more.

Our Story 

Bob Wiedenmann Jr. began in the construction business over thirty years ago as a carpenter installing roofing and wood siding. In 1978 he started his own company working for other builders and homeowners. With each project Bob gained a reputation for quality craftsmanship, honest customer service and exceeding the expectations of his clients.

In 1985, with these values in mind, he established Sunwood Development Corp. with the primary objective of building and developing quality new homes and communities. Since then, Sunwood has successfully built over 600 homes with each new home treated as "the most important one".

Always thinking of ways to improve how he does business, Bob joined the prestigious “Builder 20 Club”, sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders.  The Builder 20 Club is comprised of similar type builders from non-competing markets throughout the United States, who meet several times a year to share their wisdom and learn from each other ways to improve their operations. Members share and compare information, look for trouble spots, and offer each other advice on how to improve their performance—which translates into satisfied customers!

Our Commitment to Education 

We recognize that to be the best builder possible, continued education and training is essential. Through education we continue to develop our skills and constantly improve on both the product and the service we offer. We encourage continuing education for all of our employees. This ensures that we will always be aware of the current best practices, processes and materials to meet our client's needs. To be the best builder you can’t afford to stagnate. Education brings us fresh ideas and new energy to grow and thrive.

Bob Wiedenmann and his daughter, Amy Standish, were recently invited by the New Jersey Builders Association to be judges for their Sales and Marketing (SAM) Awards. The SAM Awards honor builders and companies that supply products and services to the building industry in New Jersey for their excellence in residential design and marketing programs. Bob and Amy helped to choose New Jersey’s “Best in Class” award recipients in over 100 categories.
