I think most people can decide for themselves what is reasonable.  I think 
trying to do your job to the best of your ability is perfectly reasonable.

<<Carrying out a VTA1>>

There's no mention of carrying out a VTA1, so that's not relevant.

<<taking 5 seconds to pull off some ivy is - in my opinion - reasonable.>>

Supposing the 'hidden defect' only became apparent after 10 seconds, 20 
seconds, or a 5 minutes of ivy pulling?

Why burden yourself, and your client, with trying to find something that's 
'hidden', when there are no other clues to tell you it's 'hidden', and give 
yourself an arbitrary amount of time to discover whether it's just too 
'hidden' to find?
