Brake pads apply friction to your rotors to slow and stop your vehicle. When brake pads begin to wear you may hear a slight squeal warning that the material is getting low and near a brake pad replacement.
Replacing brake pads before they wear to the metal will save additional expense for brake rotor machining or replacement. If you hear any kind of faint brake squeal as you drive, inspect your brake pads for replacement in Barrie.

Brake Disc Repair in Barrie
If your brake discs need resurfacing you might feel a vibration in the pedal when braking. If the discs have not worn to thin, machining the metal surface should be possible without a replacing the brake discs. This applies to both front and rear brake disc repair in Barrie. As mentioned, your rotors operate as the metal surface for brake pads and can become slightly warped through heat and friction.
Inspecting the brake rotor thickness will determine whether machining or replacing brake rotors is necessary. Either way, we will inform you before any work is done for a brake rotor repair in Barrie.

Tips To Avoid Premature Brake Repair in Barrie
Here are some helpful tips to avoid premature brake repair when driving on Barrie roadways:
Utilize engine braking: Barrie has many roads with steep hills and inclines, such as Georgian Drive and Sunnidale Road. These routes can put a lot of strain on your brakes. To minimize wear and tear, try to use engine braking when descending hills or slowing down.
Avoid heavy traffic: Busy roads like Essa Road and Bayfield Street experience heavy traffic, which can result in frequent braking and accelerating, leading to more brake wear. Try to avoid these routes during peak hours, and opt for alternative roads with lighter traffic to lessen the strain on your brakes.
Maintain a safe following distance: Maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles on roads such as Mapleview Drive, Dunlop Street West, and Highway 400 can help reduce the need for sudden braking. This, in turn, can prolong the lifespan of your brake pads. Make sure to maintain a safe following distance of at least two seconds to allow for adequate reaction time.
By following these tips, you can help prevent premature brake repair and keep your brakes in optimal condition for longer when driving in Barrie, Ontario.
