Brake Repair West Bend, WI

Your brakes are incredibly important. Not only do they allow you to come to a complete and safe stop whenever operating your vehicle, they also help you avoid unexpected road hazards and are your first line of defense when it comes to any type of automotive accident. So when you think about how often you use, or how much you depend on your vehicle it is important to consider not only the condition of your brake pads but your brake assembly as a whole.

Your brakes are more than your brake pads. There are your rotors, calipers and fluid that all start working as soon as you begin pressing down on your brake pedal. Whenever you request us to check your brakes we want to look at everything. If you have contaminants in your brake fluid it can cause premature brake failure.
