When a garage is built into the floor plan of the house it shares a roof with the house, so whatever style of roof is on the house is also on the garage. However, when the garage is detached from the house you have more leeway as far at picking a style for your garage roof. Keep in mind though that as a general rule you want all the different structures on the property to share major design cues as much as possible, just to tie the property together and maintain a sense of continuity. That said you can still get away with a bit of independence when it comes to the roof of your detached garage. And the further away from the house it is the greater your design leeway.
