Can raking my roof help the formation of icicles?

Absolutely! Think about it; if there isn’t snow on the roof, it can’t melt and then form icicles. Please Note: if you do opt to rake the snow off your roof—don’t climb on your roof as it can become slippery in the winter months and be careful on the ground—the weight of snow falling off the roof can be dangerous.
