Better to have it, especially for northern and western walls where reflective insulation will be most effective.
In addition to reflective insulation, sisalation also acts as a vapor barrier and prevents moisture between cladding and insulation batts (which you DO NOT want to be wet under any circumstances).

long lasting durable engineered hardwood for heavy used areas such as maple, might be also a very good choice to consider. it has good water resistance, too.
