Additionally, it is vital that you repoint brick only when temperatures stay within the range of 40 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit; even during the night. Fluctuating temperatures have different effects on the mortar. Cold temperatures can produce brittle mortar, while high temperatures dry the mortar, and prevent hardening.
