Code Violations?

So, I've found a couple of code violations in my home.  Does anyone know the best way to have the builder remedy them?  I found this article while searching for how to properly notify the builder, but I'm not exactly sure what to do. So far I've been keeping things fairly informal and reporting issues through Pulte's Owner's Entry website. I have a feeling the next few issues are going to require a more formal process. Any suggestions out there?

Update: Here are the VA building codes per Alexandria's Code Administration website.

4/21/2013 Update: According to Pulte, the "fireplace" is a "gas appliance" (funny, my contract said fireplace) and not a fireplace, so one of the issues that I believed was a violation of code is no big deal. The other issue has to do with make up air for the range hood, and Pulte is still trying to figure out what to do.
