Our Story

Hot Shot Auto Glass  & Calibration was formed after I learned about the significance of a proper windshield installation. My family has had windshields replaced throughout the years. After each completion, the only direction given was to leave blue tape on top of windshield for 48 hours. Other than that, vehicle was able to immediately be driven.

We were unaware that there are different cure (dry) times for each product. SAFE drive away time could range from 30 minutes to several hours. If vehicle is driven before minimum drive away time (MDAT) is reached, it can affect the integrity of the windshield installation. 

Vehicle should not be moved without knowledge of the product cure time requirements. 

My daughter had her windshield replaced and her lane departure worked intermittently for a couple of years. Before being educated about lane departure sensors, we thought this was normal. I learned that if lane departure camera has moved 1 mm or more, the calibration has been compromised. Because the camera is positioned on the windshield and removed during replacements, it must be re-calibrated (reprogrammed) to work properly. This is why her sensor did not work as the manufacturer intended. After re-calibrating her vehicle, she was amazed at the consistent performance of the lane departure alert.

We assure service has been performed by providing a report after successful calibration. 

As a consumer not knowing anything about the industry, I truly hoped that our service provider would have performed a proper installation. We hope to make a difference by not only performing but also informing others about proper repairs. As a mother, I recognize the value of every vehicle occupant and hope we make a difference one project at a time.
