Your brakes are your vehicle's most significant safety feature, which is why it's critical to keep your brakes in strong working condition—not spongy, not slow, and not squealy. Driving with faulty brakes not only puts you in danger, but others on the road as well. We have certified mechanics who specialize in servicing all aspects of brake repair, including:

The purpose of your braking system is to bring your vehicle to a stop through turning kinetic energy into thermal energy. By applying force to the brake pedal when driving, the master cylinder applies a system of hydraulic brake lines going towards each of your vehicle's wheel components. The Disc, also known as the drum, is then pushed against by the brake pads causing a rising temperature and friction. These conditions begin to take a toll on your brake system components over time.
A majority of modern vehicles already have brake wear sensors in place to let you know whether or not you need to get your brakes serviced. The easiest way to know that your brake's lifespan is coming to an end is if you notice your brakes making a schreeching sound as your release your brake or add pressure to it. On the other hand, not all vehicles are equipped with brake wear sensors so it's even more important to listen extra carefully for unusual sounds coming from your brakes if your vehicle doesn't have brake wear sensors. Grinding noises typically indicate that your brake pads have run low on padding. The friction from the metal rubbing against another metal causes the grinding sound. If you start to notice your brake pedal is becoming faulty, that it's taking a larger amount of distance to stop your vehicle than normal, or that you need to apply vast amounts of pressure to your pedal to make a routine stop, then a brake repair is most likely necessary.
