2005 Honda Civic

Usually when I apply any amount of pressure to the brakes, they make this horrible sound. Sometimes it wont make the noise but I hear it everyday. I've had my brakes changed before so I don't think it's the brake pads but maybe it has something to do with the quality of the brakes? I love my car I just wish it would make this horrible noise. I'm afraid to take it into a shop because I'm not very informed when it comes to cars and I don't want to be charged for something that I didn't need.
