valleys in new roof


3 yrs ago I had my roof replaced, and after noticing valleys in it, the contractor came and walked on it and says the wood under the shingles is pulp! The shingles are so tight, he couldn't even lift one to check under it.
What could cause this to happen? At the time of the job, everything was replaced, wood, vents, soffits, fascia, fan, gutters and insulation. Help!

Beats me. The sun will seal the shingles which is good. With good ventilation the wood should be ok unless you have termites or something is eating it or water is getting under shingles.

Lot of possibilities, possibly a poor install allowing leakage on the roof, or major moisture issues in the attic. Pics would help, although sometimes these things can be difficult to narrow down without seeing in person.

Checked for fungus from lack of proper venting?
Did they use H clips between the rafters or trusses?
