What started as a part time job in 1982 along with two brothers soon became a full time job specializing in cleanings, rebuilds, and more. Within 12 years the company grew to become the largest chimney service in the Washington DC, Metropolitan area. It was then decided that the Washington DC, Metropolitan area wasn’t big enough for the brothers. So Rick along with his wife Kellie and daughter Kay made the transition to the Baltimore area. In 1994 Rick High (president and owner) pursued his dream of becoming a successful, reliable and honest entrepreneur. His wife Kellie (vice president) has stood by his side and supported him for over twenty six years. What started as a game for their daughter Kay, answering the phone when she was only eight, is now the friendly voice on the other end of the phone dealing with scheduling to dispatching technicians to answering any question you need to know about chimneys. With Rick’s knowledge and experience, he built and created Town & Country Chimney Service, Inc., which is now the most trusted name in the industry.
