Meet The Team

James Heaphy


James Heaphy has been repairing countertops since 2003. James has extensive knowledge and experience in the repair and restoration of Solid Surface, Marble, Granite, Soapstone, Quartz, Richlite, Sintered Ceramic and Butcher Block countertops. He has developed techniques for repairing failures that have traditionally resulted in clients replacing their countertops, saving money and time, and preventing those materials from ending up in the landfill. He brings a passion and pride to his work that is reflected in his craftsmanship and attention to detail. 

Jim Heaphy


Jim Heaphy began working with DuPont CORIAN products in 1984. He was the general manager of Western Plastics in San Francisco from 1984 to 1993. He served as co-chair of the Solid Surface Products Section of DLPA, a national trade association, from 1989 to 1991. Since 1990, he has written a quarterly column on countertop fabrication techniques for Kitchen & Bath Design News magazine, the leading trade publication in the industry. He is a graduate of the University of San Francisco. He has trained hundreds of fabricators and installers about the proper procedures for working with solid surface materials. He has conducted solid surface seminars in Chicago, Hong Kong, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Long Beach, Louisville, New Orleans, Oakland, Orlando, Philadelphia, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Rosa, and Winston - Salem. He founded TopRepair (formerly known as Heaphy Associates) in 1993. His company has repaired and refurbished thousands of solid surface countertops throughout California and Nevada. TopRepair is a member of the International Solid Surface Fabricators Association (ISSFA).

Deb Heaphy


Debra Heaphy has worked for TopRepair since 2001. She does both administrative and bookkeeping for TopRepair. She is a graduate of California State University-Fresno.

In business since 1993, TopRepair specializes in repairing, refinishing and refurbishing solid surface countertops throughout California and Nevada. We work with DuPont CORIAN and all other major brands. We also repair granite, quartz, concrete, and butcher block countertops. We were formerly known as Heaphy Associates - we changed our name to TopRepair in 2006 to better reflect the type of work we do. Thousands of satisfied homeowners attest to our dedication to quality workmanship and outstanding customer service.

Our commitments to you:


  • To communicate clearly and honestly with you.

  • To schedule your repair work promptly and at a convenient time.

  • To arrive on time for your repair appointment.

  • To perform a repair that is as inconspicuous as practical.

  • To perform a repair that is as durable as practical.

  • To clean up the work area thoroughly when the repair is complete.

  • To earn your complete satisfaction.


In every case, TopRepair guarantees a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your countertops, at a price far less than it would cost you to replace the countertops.


We believe in conducting our business in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. We are members of the U. S. Green Building Council. We are convinced that repairing countertops is good for the environment. It is far better to renovate damaged countertops for many years of additional use rather than disposing of them in a landfill.


We have made a company commitment to supporting these three charities that help define our values as an environmentally and socially responsible business: 


  • Habitat For Humanity

  • American Cancer Society

  • Yosemite Association
