I was passing by a home, and noted that the garage flooring had a shiny vinyl coating, looking as if it were waterproof.

Does anyone know of this product used? And how long it lasts.

I used the same type of epoxy paint for a basement floor:

Rust-oleum EPOXYSHIELD Garage Floor Coating

There are a lot of different versions as well as professionally applied products. If you want to do it yourself:
