Though you can’t see an underlayment or a subfloor, it’s something that you absolutely need to invest in. Whether you get carpet, hardwood, or travertine, an improperly installed underlayment can cause a wide range of problems on the floor installed above it.
There are many forms of improper subfloors, whether you choose the wrong material for your subfloor, or you install the underlayment incorrectly, or even if you install a subfloor in the wrong environment (a moist environment is perhaps the worst environment in which to install an underlayment), a subfloor is best installed by a professional.

Subflooring is most often installed in places like basements, or any other place where joists in the floor cannot be found. In addition, if the age of your home predates the 1980s, when sump pumps became standard in almost every area, you will probably have a moisture problem, and you’ll definitely need to install a subfloor in that area. Finally, if you have an already-improperly installed hardwood floor, you’ll need to get that corrected immediately.
