In order to ensure your brakes are operating the way they should on a day to day basis, routine inspection is a must. The most common brake service we provide is the replacing of brake pads. This service tends to be the least inexpensive. Brake service costs tend to increase when the brake pads have been worn down so low that the metal beneath the brakes begin to rub against your rotors. Neglecting regular service is not only unsafe, but will usually cost you substantially more in the long run.
When you decide to press down on your brake pedal, brake fluid is sent from the master cylinder, which is located under the hood of your vehicle, through brake fluid hoses down to your brake calipers, which are attached to your rotors.
The force of the brake fluid being delivered to the calipers, which house your brake pads, causes the caliper to squeeze the brake pads against the spinning rotor. The result is friction which slows the vehicle. Some vehicles are equipped with drum brakes in the rear. When the brake pedal is pushed, a piston pushes the brakes shoes against the brake drum causing the same result, friction which slows the vehicle.
With repeated use, and exposure to extreme heat, over several thousand miles, all these components get dirty, worn and need inspection and periodic replacement to ensure continued safe operation.
