can you get on a one story roof with this ladder?
I would like to know is it easy to get on and off a roof with this ladder, other ladder I used had a little twist to it, and I did not feel safe on it.

I would feel fine climbing on to/off of a 12' roof with it.
I would feel fine climbing onto/off of a roof 12' high.
This is one area where I believe the Little Giant and Werner are a safer alternative, when used as a roof ladder. All the 17' multi-ladders can be extended to nominally 17', but the latching mechanism is far sturdier in the Little Giant and Werner IMO and according to many reviews.
Now I have used the very similar Vulcan 17' not quite fully extended to get up to my garage roof and it is every bit as sturdy as a good extension ladder for the 13-15' rise. I do question the Cosco latch's sturdiness in this configuration, and this has been reported on other reviews as a problem.
I'm not a fan of heights or ladders. This one feels solid enough for me on a single story house...
As long as your roof is lower than 17', you can... I am using it today to climb to my roof to install a vent.

This ladder is 14'10". It will depend how tall you are as to what size roof you can get onto. I am not aware of any twist,
