Weybridge is a lovely town by the River Wey in the Elmbridge district of Surrey. It is bounded to the north by the River Thames at the mouth of the Wey, from which it gets its name. It is an outlying suburban town within the Greater London Urban Area, situated 7 miles northeast of Woking and 16 miles (25 km) southwest of central London. Real estate prices are well above the national average: as of 2008, six of the ten most expensive streets in South East England so there is no wonder that home-owners taker such good care of their properties to avoid the dreaded dry rot and damp. In addition, Weybridge is one of the worst areas for the very damaging Woodworm, House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus) which also causes considerable damage. Fortunately you have Tapco HomeDry nearby in Esher and Thames Ditton.
