The Hill’s new roof is designed to keep magnetized walls and roofs protected against wind and rain.
The Hill, which is in the process of expanding its U.S. headquarters into the Capitol building, said Wednesday it was considering a change to the magnet in its new roof, a move that would allow it to keep some of the magnetized tiles it uses on its buildings.
“In some instances, we might need to change the magnetic tiles that we use on our buildings, to keep those magnets off of the building and away from the elements,” the Hill said in a statement.
“We would like to continue using magnetic tiles in our buildings for many years to come.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that the Hill is considering changing its roof magnet after years of criticism.
It’s not the first time the Hill has faced criticism over its magnet tiles.
In April, the Hill had to change its magnetic tiles to protect the roof from rain, when a tornado ripped through its Washington, D.C., headquarters.
On its website, the company said that the magnet tiles on its building walls would protect the building from the wind and weather.
Since the change, the Wall Street Journals has asked several Hill employees to give the Hill a thumbs-up on their new magnets, and the company has issued a statement saying it is “committed to maintaining the quality of our magnet tiles and building-wide systems.”
Magnet tiles are made from a material called magnetite, a combination of iron and nickel.
They have a “vibrant, high-tech finish” and are easy to clean, according to the Hill’s website.
