The use of cement can cause permeat damage to masonry when used to repoint brick work, this cannot be repaired easily. Cement is known to cause bricks to spall and crack.  If cement mortar is used water  will not escape the walls of your home. If moisture in the bricks are trapped moisture  within a wall will increase.  the likelihood of decay will start to happen. The risk of penetrating damp will increase. 
Winter time can be fatal to brick freezing moistures leaving bricks damaged and crumbling or flaking away.
If you own a period property chances are it was constructed with hydraulic lime rather than cement.

Practice makes perfect

We can tell you the long term benefits of using more traditional solutions on older houses rather than modern materials. The first thing you become aware of is the building fabric and why it is important to use traditional materials.
