Lisa and Anthony Carbone are the owners of TimberRidge Construction, a full service building and remodeling firm that specializes in custom homes, additions, and renovations for residential and commercial properties.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that the Takeover Makeover wouldn’t have happened without Lisa and Anthony! Caren Demyen said “I remember sitting down with Lisa back in the summer and saying how I had this idea of a Takeover Makeover. Lisa immediately said they would be part of it! Thanks to Anthony, Lisa, and the TimberRidge team, they were able to help us navigate the schedule of contractors and timeline. We really wouldn’t have been able to do this project without them. They were extremely patient, kind and supportive of me in the process and I am forever grateful!  It’s really been a learning experience for me and their dedication and passion to their work is second to none.”

Lisa and Anthony always look for ways to support the community any way they can. “We believe that giving back to our community is a responsibility for all,” said Lisa. “So many businesses have been negatively impacted by this current pandemic, including our own. I don’t think we will ever forget how stressful the first few months of this pandemic were for us, both personally and professionally. We are grateful we are able to give back to our community in this small way.” 

Lisa and Anthony are loyal customers of Periwinkle’s Fine Gifts. “We’ve shopped at Periwinkle’s ever since it opened in Cranford. We love visiting Elaine and her friendly puppy. Periwinkle’s is the source for all our Lampe Berger products. We love that she keeps track of our favorite fragrances just in case we forget what we have already tried!”

“We moved to Cranford specifically to raise our children and to grow roots for our small business,” said Lisa. “It has been the perfect town for both!  Cranford is unique because there is so much pride here. The majority of people here will go out of their way to help others.   We can only hope that Elaine, as well as her customers, are thrilled with the overall updates that have been made.”

Thank you Lisa and Anthony for all of your help and support!

Anthony and Lisa Carbone moved to Cranford 14 years ago. They knew it would be a great town to raise their family, as well as run their business, TimberRidge Construction. They’re both very involved in the town and feel it’s important to give back to their community and show their children how to be a good citizen.  Whether it’s coaching a sport or being a member of the Board of Education, Anthony and Lisa have always been involved.

Anthony and Lisa started their business from the ground up. Anthony has always been in the industry but in 2005, they officially went off on their own to create TimberRidge. “We’re never not with each other!” said Lisa, laughing. 

They love the Downtown because of the variety of businesses, as well as the walkability and camaraderie with other business owners. Over the past few months, they spoke frequently with business owners and shared tips, successes, and failures. TimberRidge never shut down and Anthony and Lisa were adamant about keeping their employees on. During the quarantine, they ran into road blocks but continued to push through.

TimberRidge does additions, renovations and custom homes – anything that is a capital improvement. They are proud of how they will always go out of their way to support their Cranford community. The best way to stay informed is to go to their website and follow TimberRidge Construction on Instagram and Facebook.

CRANFORD, NJ – A request rooted in a mother’s love, a positive review written on a job well done, a telephone call answered and the desire to give back, brought a few local businesses and a national TV show together.

Cranford resident and owner of Cranford-based TimberRidge Construction, Anthony Carbone is the first to admit, he rarely answers the phone when it rings at the office, his staff does. In March when the phone rang at the Timber Ridge office, the staff was occupied and Carbone saw NBC Universal come up on the caller ID, he answered. Andrew Bank, recruiter for the home makeover show “George to the Rescue” was on the other end and wanted to know if Carbone would be interested is a charitable makeover.

“Everyone is looking for a way to give back and when this opportunity presented itself, I couldn’t say no,” Carbone said.

Positive reviews, one in particular about timing on caught Bank’s attention, so he reached out to Carbone, who committed and went along with Bank to meet the Lissade family of Plainfield; Dad Claude, Mom Robbie, 13-year-old Nye, who is autistic with a second-grade verbal level and quiet and four-year-old full of energy Evan. “Once you meet the family, you can’t help but want to help,” Carbone said of the initial visit.

For George Oliphant, host of “George to the Rescue”, this is his 76th makeover and the connections he makes with these contractors and families last a lifetime. “Every time I do a rescue my family gets bigger, we begin as strangers, by the end, I wouldn’t hesitate to call up Anthony and say ‘Hey, How’s it going and get together,’ Oliphant said.

Oliphant loves “surprise day” when they have no idea the rescue is coming, “it is totally organic.” He admits his favorite is “reveal day”, when the family sees the renovation for the first time, Oliphant said, “I always exceeds their expectations as well as my own, which are very high.”

Mom Robbie was the one to write into the show, she wanted to transform old basement into a multipurpose play/entertainment space for sons and her husband. Robbie said, “Claude is an incredible husband and dad and deserves it and to give the kids a safe space to play.”
