Brakes Services In St. Agatha, ON

Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle. It is of the utmost importance that you ensure that your brakes are in peak working order at all times. Tirecraft Waterloo will service your brakes in a professional, thorough, and timely fashion. Our technicians are experienced and adept at addressing all manner of brake issues, including:

Brake Pads

Brake pads are the key tool in providing the friction your vehicle needs to come to a safe stop. But brake pads can become ineffective if they are worn down. At Tirecraft Waterloo, we can assess the status of your brake pads and replace them when necessary.

Noise/Squeal/Grinding

brakes

If your brakes are making a lot of noise, chances are something is wrong. Brake noise often takes the form of a high-pitched, metallic squeal. Such a noise is cause for concern because it likely means your brakes need fine-tuning. If your brakes make a grinding noise as opposed to a squeal, you need to have them serviced immediately. Grinding is usually caused by contact between rotor disc and the caliper. Grinding can also occur when a foreign object becomes lodged somewhere in the caliper

Rotors

Your vehicle’s rotors (or disc brakes) are essentially the main mechanism by which your vehicle comes to a stop. Without working rotors, your calipers and brake pads are useless, so that’s why we take the utmost care in inspecting and servicing your rotors.

Brake lines

The brake lines are what supply the brake fluid to transfer pressure to the breaks. If your brake lines don’t work, then your hydraulic brakes don’t work, which means you’re in serious trouble. If you notice that your brake fluid levels are dropping, this may be an indication of wearing disc brakes. Frequent top-ups may also be a sign of a leak in your hydraulic system.

Brake Flush

If you notice your brake fluid is dirty or you’re not sure when your brake fluid was last inspected you should consider having it checked by an expert like us.  A brake flush is essential regularly to maintain proper levels of brake fluid and thus efficient, safe brakes.

Drums

A drum brake is a type of brake in which shoes press on the inner surface of the drum. As with all brakes, regular maintenance is required to ensure safety.

ABS

ABS (or anti-lock braking system) is one of the most crucial safety systems in modern vehicles. Your ABS prevents your wheels from locking up (hence the term “anti-lock”) and ceasing rotation, thus reducing skidding. It is a good idea to have your ABS inspected regularly, especially in the autumn. Once the roads become icy in winter, your anti-lock brakes could be the only thing saving you from losing control of your automobile.

Calipers

The calipers are what squeeze the brake pads against a disc, creating the friction required to slow your vehicle.

Pulsation

Pulsation in your brakes is a sign of them not working properly. Pulsation usually occurs as result of your brakes not transferring heat and friction properly and can be dangerous. Regular pulsation is cause for a tune-up at Tirecraft Waterloo.

At Tirecraft Waterloo, we can service all aspects of your brakes. Our ASE-certified technicians will do everything to keep your vehicle in great shape. Don’t wait to get your brakes fixed—make a service appointment with us today!

They have been my "go to" for mechanics and tires, since they were Tireco on Northfield. We are a team in keeping my vehicles serving me well. Who was it said, You've got a lot riding on your tires? It only matters to whoever said it. The fact is, you do!! You'll appreciate your investment when you can make it up the slurpy icy hill in town too! Tell 'em I sent you! (no kickbacks I promise!)

I was just at Tirecraft getting new tires put on my girlfriends Nissan X-trail. The service was excellent and time flew by waiting. I was explained on the extended warranty for the tires and other services they provide. I will be taking both our vehicles in for regular maintenance like oil changes. Great to have a reliable service center so close to home.

Top customer service. For something as mundane as tires, they leave a lasting impression with the customer care. I get such a great feeling going there.

I needed my rear brake rotors and pads replaced and couldn't get the rotor screw off (needed $50 impact screwdriver and it's winter). Took it in to this shop after looking up how the parts were $100 online. I also asked for an general inspection ($50) over the car. When they gave me a call for a quote, it was $200 parts, and 1.5 hrs to do rear brakes ($180 labour), plus inspection/taxes. Double the cost for parts, and 1.5 hours to take some nuts off a caliper after you took the tires off for an inspection? I could do the job in 1 hr in a parking lot in winter with an impact screwdriver. They did a good job, charged a high rate, and took their time. $530 job for what I expected was $350 on the high end!

Bought winter tires. Prices very competitive. Got this year's improved Michelin's for cheaper than Costco's last year's model. Service was top-notch even with Covid protocols in place.

Good, fast, friendly service. Been using them for tires for a number of years now and I've always been satisfied with the prices and results. Never felt they were playing games with me or tried to bill me for unnecessary work. I recommend them.

Terrible I show up for a alignment, My rims get badly damaged and they are trying to recommend parts the car doesn't need for a rear alignment, as simple as a tie rod adjustment, I am a apprentice mechanic and the level of incompetence was disgusting I refused to pay for the work and they happily obliged

Flat tire after work. Work in Waterloo but live two towns over. Arrive fifteen minutes before closing. Would not help. A service station's best time to shine is to help someone in an emergency situation. They chose not to. ** EDIT ** Never too late to fix a grievous error and apologise for it. I was at a location on the Kitchener/Waterloo border. I put my review under 'Tirecraft Waterloo'. It was NOT your location. My sincere apologies - switching to a 5-star review to make up for it.

Our family has been dealing with the team at Tirecraft for well over 25 years. We love the team at this location they treat everyone with respect and understanding. They make sure you fully understand what is wrong with your car when they work on it. They never move forward with any work without your permission. They even offered a course for women only regarding tire change and oil change. Thank you Andrea and team.

Underpromise and overdeliver! Dropped by for a flat, was told it would be a couple hours. Less than an hour later and it’s good as new, and not a penny over what I’d expect. Great service as well.

This is a proper tire shop with competent and professional customer service reps and technicians. I've been there several times and it's been a great experience each time. I've had several bad experiences at other shops where my wheels would be scratched with no acknowledgement but after several visits to this shop, they've never once left a mark on any of my wheels. In addition, when other shops failed to balance (and re-balance) my tires properly which resulted in vibrations, this shop rectified those issues on first attempt. This is the only tire shop I will go to going forward. Keep up the good work!

I absolutely love Tirecraft Waterloo and I would highly recommend you visit. Their knowledgeable team has assisted myself and my family members with several of our vehicles and always do a great job. Their customer service (specifically by Andrea and Udo) is phenomenal and they always remember to make you feel listened to and special. I wouldn"t go anywhere else with my vehicle now- check them out!

I went to them with my vehicle after taking it to Canadian tire to be safetied - their experience was far outranking the people at Canadian Tire and when they looked at my car, they told me that for a vehicle of my age and kilometers, my car was in great shape and had no problem re- safetying it - where as Canadian tire wanted me to get $2k in repairs done on the axle. I have driven the car from Ottawa and back a few times now and it has been perfectly fine. So glad I went to Tirecraft Waterloo after my friend Sarah Brnjas told me off for going to Canadian Tore first before TW.

Amazing Service Excellent work and only did what was needed. Fair prices and quality work. Would recommend to family and friends!!!!!!!!!! This is the real Richard, I did not write the above review, never been there

I had a flat which was worryingly close to the tire shoulder and I know it could not be plugged. After putting on the donut, I took it into Tirecraft right at opening and the expert behind the counter (I mean that in all seriousness, 30+ years in the business) informed me that they would dismount the tire and evaluate it. In a jiffy they confirmed that a patch should hold, and while my daughter was busy coloring in their well stocked kids area, the tire was patched, installed on the vehicle, and the spare tidily put back in the trunk. Amazing service with knowledgeable folks. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing service or tires.
