comment Should light bulbs above showers be “steam proof”?
The bulb is exposed, it's a flood light with flood light trim, which resembles the base of a cone, with the tip cut off. There's also plenty of space between the bulb and the trim, so if the light is off, and you shine a flashlight at it, you can see the can light housing.

comment How do I fix the cracks in my brick foundation?
imgur.com/gallery/f88d2 (couldn't help it, please be kind mods). That said (and that's not a serious recommendation). The first answer seems to be the best one. The one caveat that I would add is cracks in the walls may extend to the foundation, and if you experience seepage from ground water, you should be concerned with a cracked / leaky foudation, which is a whole other can of worms. I'd check for residual moisture if you can, that may be a sign of ground water seeping up.

Great advice. Better to use the correct tool.

comment How do I properly cut pre-existing kitchen backsplash tile for new low voltage wall plates?
excellent, thanks for the tips! Since I don't have that tool, but I do have an electric powered jig saw, could I use a masonry bit on a power drill to drill four holes in each corner of where the new wall plate will go, then use a masonry blade on the power jig saw to finish out the wall plate hole?

Not just saying this because of the photo you chose, but are you certain that tool is the best tool for cutting ceramic tile down the middle and NOT just for cutting along the grout seams? Would it be best to cut a tile out, then cut that tile to size, then re-affix it to the wall with tile grout or tile caulking of some sort?

Yeah, I'm planning on properly cutting the chipped piece, and gluing it back into place, but I need to know how to cut it properly, in part because there is another wallplate I'd like to install where there currently isn't one at all.
